That could be true, maybe their D is trending upward. Their record against tournament/high-caliber teams just gives me solace. I mean, our offense continued to trend upward as our schedule got more difficult. Can you imagine what gaudy numbers we would have if we had been playing TCU, Texas Tech, and the rest of B12’s basement?
No doubt they’re dangerous in the kind of erratic way that great offensive teams are, though, in that they could simply be invincible by scoring points faster than is possible to keep up with (I think of the UCLA game, as an extreme example). Seeing their high offensive-rebounding is also bothersome.
