What’s wrong with Seygan Robins?

That’s a question I’ve been getting a lot lately about the Mercer County senior, so I thought why not ask Mercer coach Chris Souder.

“The only thing I would say is nothing. She is working on her shot on getting it up higher and off quicker, things they want her to do to get ready to play at Louisville next year. She’s not shot as well this year, but she’s playing just as hard and leading us in steals, deflections,” Souder said.

In mid-November, I invoked every visionary tool available to foretell the future of the 2017-18 Kentucky basketball season. This forecast flew in the face of the conventional wisdom as portrayed in the sacrosanct Pomeroy ratings (#8, 0.238 ppp) and the wire service polls. However, Pomeroy systematically over valued Kentucky’s adjusted net efficiency (thereby Kentucky’s rank) due to giving huge weight to its own preseason values for UK (#2, 0.277 ppp) rather than the actual performance of the Kentucky team in those first 5 games (#44, 0.147 ppp).
