We now see 5 PL teams in the top 200 in both KenPom and Sagarin, as Lehigh just broke that threshold. Per 137’s post above, this may be the first time that’s happened. We are at 199 & 192, respectively. I think a win @ Quinnipiac will continue that upward momentum.
KenPom still has American at the top with the ‘pards 2nd, while Sagarin has those two reversed. Otherwise pretty similar. I’m not sold on American yet. Seems that they play good defense, and definitely take the air out of the ball (#351 in D1 for pace), but I’m not convinced that they can score enough. We’ll see, I s’pose.
