Tigers #10 In Defensive Efficiency Per Ken Pomeroy


In a follow up to the analysis in the preceeding article, I have complied the list of Top 25 defensive efficient teams so far through the season.

I point this out because several basketball analysts and members of the media believe defense wins championships (I tend to agree, wholeheartedly).

I point you to a wonderful article written by SI.com's Luke Winn this time last year (December 21, 2006, to be exact).

See Luke Winn's "Early Warnings, Teams Who Need to Shore Up on D to Succeed in March".
