Will Lavender = Closet mathmatical genius!Re: the Pomeroy numbers, schedule has nothing to do with it. The numbers are adjusted for competition.
What's hurting us there is the fact that we turn it over all the time. We don't play very fast, we turn it over a lot = low offensive efficiency. The difference between 14 turnovers in a game and 20+ is a world; for example, Carolina jumped about 15 spots after the loss on Saturday, while we dropped. That's because they were eight or so more possessions more efficient than we were, and that's a noticeable difference.
If this team finds a way to put a string of games together where we're turning it over 12-15 times a game, we'll make a jump of about 50 spots because we're in the green (and that's good) in a ton of numbers inside our individual Pomeroy profile.
