But I surely didn't expect UK to be 65th on December 9. Not when we've won 8 games and lost 0. I'm not sure, but I'm almost 100% positive we weren't 65th last year at any point in the season and we had a major turnover problem all season and were a truly abysmal team by the end.
My theory is that we just do a few things that the Pomeroy numbers punish you for, and we've done them consistently in each of our 8 games. Turnovers specifically, but also things like free throw percentage and turnovers forced.
I think it can be said that we've won so far based on individual talent, while our team is pretty raw. The first half of the UNC game showed what we can do, but we're still confused much of the time on both ends of the court.
