We have hit 7 post season games, so I am kicking out a TVT to show how this team has re-defined itself. Literally overnight they have turned their season long production averages upside down.
TVT: net positive production per minute. Add up the good stuff, subtract the bad stuff, divide by minutes played. Breaks every player down to a single number – “When you play for 1 minute, you gain the cardinals “x” net positive contributions per minute. If you had a score of 1.0, that would be 1 net positive stat per minute. that is hard to do. .40, means you contribute a net positive stat in just over 2 minutes.
Duke TVT - Gorgui blows Plumlee out of the water.
People missed that if they looked on at partial statlines. Gorgui almost produced the same stat line as Plumlee’s, exceeded in some parts, but in only 25 minutes (vs. 39 for Plumlee).
He was Louisville’s most productive by minute played – not even close. Siva and Smith – the starts by most accounts were 4th and 5th. Insane production by the team people.
TVT averages by Schedule Segments
Big East had a disappointing start on day of the tourney, 3-5 to be exact. How are they doing now? Since day 1, the Big East is a sizzling 8-1. They put those 3 teams into the Sweet 16, Elite 8, and 2 have moved on to the Final Four.
I wonder if the Big East will be judged by their “tournament results”, or their “first day results”, because let’s face it, after the first weekend – 52 teams are gone, and many quit paying attention. I think they would be missing the real story of the Big East in 2013.
When you factor everything in – The A-10 and Pac-12 were underrated, but the Big East and B1G held up to their season long billing as top conferences.
Another thing to note – since people often have a problem with the amount of bids Big East gets (which by the way was 50% of their conference) is how does the Big East do proportionately to the field relative to the bids they get.

Beating Duke for a final four is always worth watching.
This game had a range of emotions unlike any game in my lifetime. #Win4Ware
