Required reading for your hoops weekend


Never liked pie graphs, stats or puzzles? Then you haven’t read Luke Winn’s power rankings.

When the writer ranks the nation’s top 16 D-teams it’s always one of the week’s most insightful, enjoyable reads. (And with the occasional music/book reference.)

Among this week’s highlights:

  • A Jared Sullinger pie graph
  • Why Duke’s among the 10 teams who are playing way faster this season
  • A Jimmer NBA evaluation
  • Austin Freeman’s awesomeoness
  • Harrison Barnes’ improved shot selection
  • And a quiz on Big East coaches’ attire (of which I got four)

In fact, I’m a little annoyed you’ve read this far down the post without going to read the rankings. What else do you have to do on a Friday?
