Game Predictions 12/23/07

Crystal BallWith most Big Ten squads playing yesterday, the schedule is light today with Penn State and Purdue as the only teams to take the floor today

Prediction:

  • Penn State 74 Colgate 58
  • Purdue 67 Missouri St 63

Note: My prediction algorithm is based on Ken Pomeroy offensive and defensive efficiency ratings. I use my own methodology to tweak his ratings based on where the game is being played, then calculate a predicted score using the adjusted efficiency ratings and the expected pace of the game.

  1. Penn State continued their string of defensive effort in their victory over Colgate while the Boilermakers eked out a neutral court win in Las Vegas

    The actual scores
    * Penn State 66 Colgate 48
    * Purdue 72 Missouri St 70

    This was the third straight game that Nittany Lions have held an opponent under 50 (the others were Princton 38 and Denver 39).
