WEEK 1 #KPI BASKETBALL (as of 11/18/13)

Welcome to Week 1 of the basketball version of the #KPI.  Current football data can be found here.

#KPI Basketball can be found at http://www.kpisports.wordpress.com/kpibasketball, including updated data relative to rule changes.

There’s no need to beat around the bush here.  The preliminary data below is so early that it is virtually meaningless (we are 10.1% of the way through the season).  Football data from Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3 proves that things can change quickly after more games are played.  Remember, all teams started at zero (unlike any polls).  #KPI rankings are only based upon ten days worth of data with no preconceived notions good, bad or indifferent.  Preseason rankings do not matter.  Last season’s results do not matter.
