What advanced stats and that trusty weatherman-turned-hoops guru Ken Pomeroy have taught us is that it's silly to look at the NCAA leaders for points scored and assume those are the best offenses in the country.
Pomeroy's website (subscription required for stats) gives us a much better idea for where teams rank offensively. His adjusted offensive efficiency measures each team on a possession basis and also factors in strength of the opposing defense along with when and where the game is played.
Look at it like an exam: It's not how many questions you answer, but rather the percentage of the questions you got right.
So, sorry tempo-pushers like North Carolina and VMI. There's no need for speed to get on this list.
We're looking for efficiency. And these are the 10 teams that I expect to be at the top of Pomeroy's adjusted offensive efficiency rankings at the end of the year.
