OT: 30 best arena atmospheres in college hoops
Since we are in the doldrums of the off season. One of our WAC brethren made the list. Take a wild guess who that is:

This is fun for the kids, but most adult GCU fans I know might be getting as tired of this narrative as non-GCU fans. Hoping that more OOC games away from GCU arena will help shift the conversation around the team from hijinks in the stands to actual play on the floor.

While your at it take a wild guess which WAC arena has the best home record in the WAC during the last 4 years? That's the stat that really matters! Kudos to GCU for filling their arena.

RE: OT: 30 best arena atmospheres in college hoops
Whatever your feelings are about KenPom, he actually has a calculation for home court advantage. It looks like there is some magical calculation using both home-foul advantage and home-scoring advantage, which is supposed to be the best approximation of future home-court advantage. There were some surprises when looking at how the WAC ranks...

1. UVU (9th Overall)
2. NMSU (19)
3. Chicago St. (155)
4. Seattle (167)
5. UTRGV (229)
6. GCU (247)
7. UMKC (267)
8. CSUB (276)

That said, Ken Pomeroy is also very candid about the limits of these calculations:

"The result is that determining which team has the best home-court advantage is impossible with any degree of certainty. Even distinguishing between the tenth-best and 60th-best home-court advantage is on shaky ground. It’s probably best to think of of home-court rankings in groups of three. Teams rated in the top-third probably have an above-average home-court advantage and teams in bottom-third probably have a below average home-court advantage.

Applying this logic, the conclusion would be that UVU and NMSU have an above-average HCA, while GCU, UMKC, and CSUB have a below-average HCA.

Numbers are fun! :)
