Regarding the Kenpom analysis, is that for the beginning of the season? If so, does it remain the same at the end of the season?
Of course it remains the same. While State’s players gained a season of experience by the end of the season, so too did all players on all other teams. I suppose one might argue that the gain made by a freshman from the start to the end of the season is larger than the gain made by an older player, but I think the difference is likely not significant.
