Pomeroy efficiency stats are adjusted for schedule strength, and those adjustments might introduce distortion. Certainly do, as they overrate mediocre teams from top conferences.
You can't fake shooting percentages. Wichita's field goal % defense is outstanding, and their 3-point shooting is too. They also have been excellent at getting fouled and making free throws.
Can't fake rebounding percentages either. Their rebounding percentages are very good, especially on the defensive end.
Wichita also plays more bench than almost anybody.
If they get a chance to play Kentucky, note -
UK's very good at perimeter defense, but their outside shooting is mediocre.
They make their living in the paint, layups and dunks.
UK also depends on getting fouled, not quite so good shooting at the line though.
Kentucky's ballhandling is outstanding, offensive rebounding is good, defensive rebounding is decent. They are pretty average when it comes to fouling.
Kentucky absolutely depends on getting a lot of quick and easy baskets. When they bog down and half to run offense, they look like darn.
