Top Teams – Offensive Efficiency, Defensive Efficiency

Posted by ibleedblue040 on February 3, 2008

I have already brought to you the most offensively efficient players on the Kentucky Wildcat roster but how does the overall team compare to the best in the nation? Is Kentucky more efficient on offense than the likes of Memphis, North Carolina and UCLA? Does UK have the stingiest SEC defense? Find out by looking at the rankings below. Please not that I could not find the necessary information on 3 top teams. I do not list Kansas State, Drake or Duke, so please take into account their absences.
