More About Purdue

Stuckey: Purdue came into the season as a legit national title contender, but the Boilermakers have a few issues, primarily on the defensive end. They don’t force turnovers and struggle mightily to defend the perimeter, especially against pick and roll.

The offense, which works through the post as much as almost any team, is absolutely elite in almost every sense outside of a few turnover issues that can creep up. However, I’m just not sure they have the caliber of defense necessary for a national championship.

A good rule of thumb that has almost always held true is you can’t win a national title if the sum of your offensive and defensive efficiency (per KenPom) is greater than 50. Purdue ranks second in offense, but 101st in defense.

More About Texas

Doug Ziefel: Much like their counterparts in Lubbock, the Longhorns are a tremendous defensive team. Texas finished the regular season 12th in adjusted defensive efficiency and 14th in turnover percentage.

The major question mark is their offense. It has been very streaky from game to game, which is shown in their effective field goal percentage. They had a 50.1 effective field goal percentage heading into the Big 12 Tournament, which was on point with the national average.

They have plenty of potential on offense thanks to weapons like Timmy Allen, Marcus Carr and Andrew Jones. If they can get those three guys going, they will be able to compete.
