Who needs the AP and USA Today Coaches polls when Ken Pomeroy is churning out magic with his KenPom rankings? Yeah, Kentucky is unranked in the two polls that matter on television, but in Pomeroy’s enchanting world of numbers, Kentucky is the 19th ranked team in the country. 19th sounds much better than NR, if you ask me.
Pomeroy uses formulas and statistics that are way above my head to assemble his Pomeroy College Basketball Rankings for all 347 teams. The rankings were updated yesterday and Kentucky is just ahead of Ole Miss in that 19th spot. Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Michigan and Duke make up the top five.
Ken Pomeroy gets it.
