KenPom Rankings for Non-Conference Cupcakes

New, 4 comments

As promised, I thought we'd take a look at the final KenPom Rankings for Tech's non-conference schedule for the 2007-2008 year (for reference purposes, Texas Tech finished 70th):

  • University of California, Riverside: 306
  • Sam Houston State University: 155
  • Stephen F. Austin: 214
  • GAS
    • Butler: 25
    • Gonzaga: 55
    • Liberty: 215
    • Michigan: 54
    • Washington State: 29
    • Western Kentucky: 144
    • Alaska Anchorage: ?
  • TCU: 152
  • Centenary: 248
  • Louisiana Tech: 189
  • New Mexico: 128
  • Stanford (Dallas - American Airlines Center): 53
  • Northwestern State: 186
  • Lamar: 227
  • UTEP: 126

Some quick math tells us that the average ranking of the non-conference teams that Tech will play, excluding the GAS, is 180. That's freaking outstanding. I know, some of the teams in the GAS might improve this average, but I'm thoroughly impressed by the level of opposing talent.

I think we can all admit that this is a little ridiculous.
