Buffaloes basketball ranked #39 in initial Pomeroy rankings

New, 1 comment

Ken Pomeroy's rankings are always one of the most accurate measurements of basketball success.

USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Buffaloes come in at no. 39 in the initial Ken Pomeroy preseason rankings which makes sense when you take off your Buffs glasses and realize that there is some uncertainty surrounding Tad Boyle's 2013-14 squad

Pomeroy's analytics are always a relatively accurate and informed way to look at college basketball teams and his ranking of the Buffaloes heading into the season is a good reality check for Buffs fans.

Per KenPom.com:

The personnel component doesn't consider transfers or recruits outside the top 100. It does have knowledge of players that played two seasons ago but missed last season, but that is a small influence. So if your team has players that the personnel component can't see (transfers, junior college players, and non top-100 recruits for mid-majors), then it's possible your team is underrated. Keep in mind, though, that the first component handles some of this. It effectively sets a "replacement level" for new players on the roster that aren't accounted for in the personnel component.
