SEC Tournament Champions: A Four Factors Review

USA TODAY Sports

Here’s a quick breakdown of how the Rebels strung together 3 wins in 63 hours, in essentially a do-or-die situation.

SECT OM Opponents
eFG% 47.3% 44.3%
TO% 14.3% 19.9%
OR% 26.3% 30.0%
FTR 38.1 24.1

In 196 possessions over 3 tournament games, the Rebels committed just 28 TOs and got to the FT line 64 times. Opponents committed 39 TOs and attempted just 42 FTs. Those two factors, more than anything else, have been keys to the Rebels’ success on the offensive end this season, and helped lead the Rebels to their first SEC Tourney title in 32 long years.

Perhaps even more than those factors though, credit a resurgent effort on the defensive end. The Rebels allowed conference opponents to shoot at a 49.9% eFG% clip for the 18-game conference season, but really got after it in Nashville. There was a renewed passion on that side of the court that translated in to 22 steals over the 3 games, which led to transition points.

I’ll pull together a Four Factors Preview for the Badgers for tomorrow. Spoiler alert, there are a lot of similarities between Wisconsin and Florida as far as tempo and styles of play, but I'll get into more detail later.
