Analyzing the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight (2007-2012)

The charts below contain regular season stats, segmented by Division 1 average, Division 1 Best and the Elite Eight teams for the given year.

Annually, the teams in the Elite Eight have high Strength of Schedule numbers. This is not surprising. Of the 48 Elite Eight teams in the last six  years, only seven of them (15%) have been from “mid-major” conferences.

Last year’s Elite Eight had some of the poorest defensive metrics of any year.

Compared to 2011, this year’s Elite Eight has a better Offensive Efficiency (points per possession), Defensive Efficiency and Opponent eFG%.
