Spent some time this morning looking at advanced stats for Gonzaga and Tennessee this morning...
Gonzaga:
Avg ORTG: 125.1
Avg DRTG: 99.5
Tennessee:
AVG ORTG: 110.9
Avg DRTG: 83.5
If you meet Zags ORTG halfway with Tennessee DRTG you get 104.3, if you meet Tennessee’s ORTG halfway with Zags DRTG you get 105.2....so on paper this matchup is pretty damn even, the question is going to be can Tennessee’s defense be good enough to bring Gonzaga down around that 104.3 number, which would be a season low for them, if not then Tennessee’s offense is going to have to be better than usual.
