UConn on top of another ranking

UConn continued to be the runaway No. 1 pick in both the national polls (although Notre Dame did receive a first-place vote in the coaches poll) and the Huskies also lead the way in the UPS Team Performance Index.

The Team Performance Index is a number crunching project with categories in Offensive Measure, Defensive Measure, Rebounding Percentage, Ball Handling (which factors in assists and steals both offensively and defensively), Overall Miscue Measure (turnovers not including steals and fouls per game factored in) and Success Measure (winning percentage).

UConn leads the way in Offensive Measure, Defensive Measure, Ball Handling and Success Measure. Not surprisingly UConn leads the overall index by nearly 10 over No. 2 Notre Dame. Stanford, Baylor and South Carolina round out the top five. Louisville, which will host UConn on Mar. 3 in the regular-season finale checks in at No. 8. The next American Athletic Conference team is Rutgers at No. 39.

There will be a live blog running during tonight's game featuring Twitter posts from a few different outlets including my account.

The blog will go live at 7:30 p.m.
