Adjusted efficiency: Raw offensive efficiency is points scored per 100 offensive possessions. The adjusted version adjusts for the quality of opposing defenses, the site of each game, and when each game was played (recent games get more weight). Defensive efficiency is points allowed per 100 defensive possessions, adjusted for the same things. (The ratings glossary page has more details on points per possession calculations.)

did anyone detect even one positive thing from this game?February 6, 2014 at 3:53 am #13556
Well we were very relaxed in the 1st half :).
Another game where we sleep thru 1st half and get frenetic in the 2nd. Cant see that anyone played well. A shame we win most of these uf we just show up early. Dont need a great game just a whole one and we win. One good thing W made an apple pie tonite. That was a positive in my houseFebruary 6, 2014 at 2:58 pm #13561
Power outages extended to Lehigh’s first half offense.
Hard to win games when the scoreboard reads 25-8 with 8 minutes left in the half.
Hard to win games specifically against Army when you fall behind like that. The one absolute, unchangeable constant about the Academies is that they are extremely hard workers and they have a deep bench. It’s the one team where Lehigh cannot afford this game of falling behind then rallying (and now they’re 0-2 against Army as a result).
Until Lehigh finds a way to beat a team like this, they won’t be Patriot League champions. Bank on it.February 6, 2014 at 3:16 pm #13562
did anyone detect even one positive thing from this game?
Short Answer: No
Long answer: Mackey having to be sat as a sr for a dumb infraction is pretty pathetic. Free throws are embarrassing on this team right now. Shane just needs to go up strong and try to finish instead of trying to get foul calls. Jesse is shooting 37%. AP seems to have regressed a bit since the beginning of the season, which is disappointing. AND lastly, the team really needs to figure out how to start games. Time to alter the starting 5?February 6, 2014 at 4:05 pm #13563
Positive? I didn’t actually barf…
