Home court advantage can mean a lot in college basketball but it isn’t on display in the win-loss column only. It is also a major variable in the way teams play. From their tempo to their offensive and defensive scoring efficiencies and spreads everywhere else. Using the “four factors of basketball” as a guideline I’ve created a table that shows both how the offenses and defenses perform for each Big 12 team when you compare their conference home games to their conference road games so far (2/14/2013).
The list is just sorted alphabetically but for each stat the number on display is the margin for that team, away games subtracted from home games. For instance, Kansas averages a whopping 6.27 more possessions per game at home than on the road in conference games. The Cyclones score 0.13 points per possession higher at home than on the road. Baylor opponents shoot a 4.1% better eFG% in Waco than in road games for Baylor.
Each column is color coded with red being the largest number by team in the column and blue being the lowest. Here’s the chart:
From this you can see the different areas where different teams excel or play differently from home games to road games.
