Offense/Defense Ratings (Conference Games Through 2/27/05)

Welcome to the eighth in my weekly series
of posts assessing the offensive & defensive
performance of ACC teams in conference games.

First is the rating of team offensive
performance, from best (highest) to worst
(lowest); then the rating of team defensive
performance, from best (lowest) to worst
(highest); and finally, a tally of each team's
tendencies, from highest offense to highest
defense. The basic form of these ratings is

[points/(def rebounds + turnovers)]

with the obvious team's number for each
category.
