Gators and Hoyas Pom Numbers

Ken Pom's site provides a sabermetric like approach to basketball.

Tempo = Possessions / (40 minutes) - this is the pace or opportunties to score.

The raw number uses a team's actual stats. The adjusted figure makes allowances for the competition faced, and in the case of efficiency, for the site of the game, and gives slightly more weight to more recent games.

Gators:
Raw Tempo: 69.6 poss/40 min National Rank= 94
Adj Tempo: 69.0 poss/40 min National Rank=108
Hoyas:
Raw Tempo: 59.6 poss/40 min National Rank=328
Adj Tempo: 59.6 poss/40 min National Rank=329

Offensive Efficiency(OE) = Points scored / (100 possessions)
Defensive Efficiency(DE) = Points allowed / (100 possessions)

Gators:
Offense Raw Efficiency : 113.4 ( 3)
Offense Adj Efficiency : 116.5 ( 9)
Defense Raw Efficiency : 92.0 ( 21)
Defense Adj Efficiency : 88.2 ( 11)
Hoyas:
Offense Raw Efficiency : 110.6 ( 14)
Offense Adj Efficiency : 116.7 ( 8)
Defense Raw Efficiency : 98.1 ( 97)
Defense Adj Efficiency : 92.5 ( 42)
