The Streaking the Lawn Podcast is back! With basketball season quickly approaching, Pierce, Brian, and Danny bring Ken Pomeroy on the show to discuss hoops, stats, and how awesome Tony Bennett is. For those who are unfamiliar, Ken runs his possession by possession rankings at KenPom.com and you can regularly find his articles in the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and on ESPN.com among other places.
In addition to chatting about advanced stats, tempo, and efficiency, the guys talk about the new rules for NCAA basketball, rating teams based on incoming freshmen, and possible expansion of Ken's statistics. It's not all number crunching though; we also learn that, despite being a Hokie graduate, Ken grew up a UVa fan - and has had a bit of reaction from Terp twitter world from ranking Maryland where they deserve to be.
