Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State has won just one more than it has lost but it’s played one of the twenty most difficult schedules in the country, thus far. It’s a top-50 team at KenPom for its trouble.
But two close losses early in the season are tarnishing PSU’s resume a bit. The Nittany Lions lost by two at DePaul and by three on a neutral floor against Bradley.
Otherwise, the two most concerning losses are the two PSU has in conference play, already having lost at Maryland and at home, by two, to Indiana.
The Nittany Lions have already hit a season’s quota for one-possession losses and we’re just entering the think of conference play. They are going to need to spring an upset or two and have a solid conference season to get back onto the bubble.
Michigan has blown-out Purdue at home and nipped Northwestern on the road by a deuce. It didn’t lose in the non-conference, either, which explains the #2 ranking and #4 spot at KenPom, a fraction of a point ahead of of Michigan State.
The statistics don’t indicate an elite offense in Ann Arbor but the defense has been fantastic, namely in limiting two of the most efficient ways to score in the game: the three-point shot and free-throws.
Michigan has committed the second-fewest personal fouls in the country and, in turn, opponents have shot the fourth-fewest free throws. Those same opponents have attempted the fifth-fewest three-pointers. The shots they do attempt don’t go in very often, less than thirty-nine percent of the time.
