Best Season Since 1998? A Perspective on Kentucky
April 5, 2012 3 Comments
In my day job, a lot of respect is given to the Gartner Magic Quadrant. The chart below attempts to plot regular season college basketball data into a similar structure. But the measurements here are much more basic than Gartner’s process.
2012 Kentucky looks like a historically well-balanced team in the one-and-done era. Interestingly enough, while putting this together, I listened to the Apr 4 CBS College Hoops Podcast where Matt Norlander and crew debated whether Kentucky was better than the 1999 Duke.
Side note: If you have any interest in attempting to create a more detailed measurement system similar to the Gartner MQ criteria (“ability to execute” and “completeness of vision”), let me know.
