Slowest Tempo Region Ever? Prob 2019 South Region ft KSU
« on: March 18, 2019, 02:02:50 AM »
We all know our Cats play at a slow pace (frustratingly so at times, but whatevs), but this year the NCAA committee has decided to group KSU with all the other slowest teams in the country it seems. It starts at the top, with the best slow team of them all in Virginia. Is this good for KSU? Should our Cats look to push tempo, especially with a healthy Diarra and potentially no Wade?

Seed. Team Possessions (tempo rank)
1. Virginia 59.3 (353)
16. Gardner Webb 67.1 (196)

8. Ole Miss 68.3 (129)
9. Oklahoma 68.7 (112)

5. Wisconsin 63.6 (332)
12. Oregon 64.1 (328)

4. K-State 63 (342)
13. UC Irvine 65.1 (296)

6. Villanova 63.6 (333)
11. St. Mary's 62.6 (347)

3. Purdue 65.6 (276)
14. Old Dominion 64.3 (325)

7. Cincinnati 63.2 (338)
10. Iowa 69.4 (82)

2. Tennessee 67.7 (155)
15. Colgate 66.3 (236)

I mean half of the teams in the region are ranked 300 or lower in kenpom adjusted tempo, and that's not even counting UC Irvine at 296.

If KSU [63 (342)] wins and the bracket plays to chalk Cat opponents would be:
UC Irvine 65.1 (296)
Wisconsin 63.6 (332)
Virginia 59.3 (353)
Tenn 67.7 (155)

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

My crystal ball says with Wade we go to the Sweet 16, and without Wade, we lose first round.  This is probably the opinion of 6 out of 10 cats fans and 8 out of 10 non-cat fans tho.

I'm in Pete's court.  A super confident, chip-on-shoulder non P5 team is a scary first round pickup.  UC Irvine smokes their opponents.  They also start 2 Seniors and 3 Juniors.

A guy on of the selection shows mentioned the number of slow teams in the region in passing. Super weird.

It is pretty crazy. A bunch of slow defensive teams.
