The most well rounded State team since 99-01.



I've been looking at the Sagarin, Pomeroy, and RPI ratings over the last month or so, and this is a team that has remained consistent in all three categories.


A superior breakdown shows that State is in the Top 10 nationally in Adjusted Field Goal Defense and Adjusted Field Goal Offense, which demonstrates extremely consistent play on both ends of the floor. I know there are a lot of differentiating factors in the formulas used to determine Sagarin, Pomeroy, and RPI, and won't attempt an analytical breakdown of all of them (leave that to the experts). In the RPI rankings released on 1/29/12, Michigan State was ranked 4th, in the Sagarin and Pomeroy rankings, released on the same date, Michigan State was ranked 5th in both. Calculate in that Michigan State is ranked in the Top 16 in rebounds per game, and assists per game, and rebounding margin, this team shines with consistency and well-rounded quality. It would be tough to argue that Izzo has coached a team that is more well-rounded. Let's just hope they can, in traditional Spartan fashion, continue to shine in March and beyond.
