2011 Final Ratings

The full spreadsheet can be found here. The what and why can be found here.

It was an interesting year in the Big Ten in efficiency terms. Overall, the overall average efficiency took a bit of dive in the second half of conference play, and while there were of course exceptions, it's interesting that the per-possession median and the per-game production actually went up. One easy explanation is that coaches just followed Thad Matta and Bill Carmody's lead and shortened their benches, trying to squeeze more out of their best players even if it meant they were less efficient. Personally, I definitely prefer Izzo's play every guy approach, but it's not my job on the line, I suppose. Anyway, without further ado, the stats and top performers!

Overall per-game mean: 11.1
Overall per-game median: 10.4
Overall per-possession mean: .2994
