The archive of our KenPom Bracketology series
The final KenPom Bracketology before Selection Sunday still has Xavier farther down the bracket then they are likely to land.
Xavier in the middle of five Big East teams currently in the bracket… but still somehow behind Wichita State.
Xavier’s win over Nova raised expectations more than it raised the KenPom numbers. X stays in solid position but lags behind its real-life place on the S-curve.
Tempo free numbers aren't as kind to Xavier as bracketologists are. That said, there's nothing wrong with hanging this high in any bracket.
Earlier in the year we loved Xavier by the numbers. Now, things are getting ugly.
Xavier’s record goes one way, but their KenPom ranking continues to trend the other.
The computers don’t love Xavier nearly as much as you and I do.
The computer numbers don't see Georgetown as a very good team, so Xavier's seed takes a beating in this week's edition of KenPom Bracketology.
The media polls haven't bumped Xavier much, but the cold, hard, numbers are unforgiving.
On the back of another impressive win, Xavier starts bumping up against the one seed line.
Is this the year that Xavier's Sweet 16 run doesn't come from the bottom of the bracket?
Xavier and Villanova lead a handful of Big East teams in the latest Pomeroy bracket.
It's way too early to do this, but that hasn't kept the resident bracketologist from diving in.
It's conference tournament week, so things are changing fast.
If only Ken Pomeroy's rankings were the ones that matter.
The whims of fickle bracketologists have Xavier dangerously close to the cut line, but the dispassionate logic of the KenPom rankings tells a different story.
Xavier beat their hated rival last night, did it help them move up the S-curve at all?
Xavier continues to creep up. It would seem the unfeeling circuitry of computer rankings likes X a lot more than most human bracketologists right now.
KenPom may still like the Musketeers, but even he has them sliding down the bracket.
A big road win means Xavier is moving up in the bracket, but the Big 12 is still the dominant league in the country.
As conference play begins, so does the conference attrition. The Big East, though, still has 60% of its teams in position for the big dance.
Keep winning in the conference and keep moving up the seed lines. Xavier is six seed now, and the Big East places seven teams.
Win and move up or lose and move down. Come as close as possible to doing both and stay in the same basic position.
The entirety of the Associated Press is sleeping on Xavier, but the numbers don’t lie and the Muskies are moving up.
Xavier moves farther away from the dreaded play in games and toward the middle of the S curve. Meanwhile, the rest of the Big East is represented very well.
Despite the usual dreadful Thanksgiving tournament, Xavier is still in our KenPom driven tournament.
Our first shot at filling out a (projected) bracket with the stone-cold objectivity of the KenPom numbers.
