The Horns claimed their share of the Big 12 title on Sunday afternoon by blowing out Oklahoma. They finish the conference season 13-3, which matches their best record ever in the Big 12. We have all lamented the three roads losses this season and commented the team is at times manic, but when you look at the numbers, Texas dominated their conference schedule.
I will save you the trouble of analyzing these too closely.
The Horns finished 1st in the following categories:
Scoring Defense--57.9 points per game (over four points less than second place A&M)
Scoring Margin--+15.1 points per game (closer to 25 points in home contests)
Three Point Field Goal Percentage--41.7 % as a team (led by Kenton Paulino & AJ Abrams)
Three Point Field Goal Percentage Defense--31.5% (ESPN says this is our weakness)
Rebounding Margin--+8.5 (was even higher earlier in the season)
And finished 2nd or 3rd in these categories:
Scoring Offense--72.9 (third)
Free Throw Percentages--73.9% (second)
Field Goal Percentage--46.3% (second)
Field Goal Percentage Defense--39.1% (second)
Rebounding Defense--29.3 (second)
Blocked Shots--4.25 per game (third)
Assist/Turnover Ratio--1.18 (second)
Defensive Rebounds--24.8 (second)
3 Point Field Goals Made--8.0 per game (third)
Not bad. Not bad at all.
