I'm curious about the biggest year-to-year dropoffs in offensive efficiency, because this Boston College team has to be up there. Steve Donahue inherited a group of experienced well-coached offensive players in his first season, led by Reggie Jackson. Biko Paris came out of nowhere to shoot the lights out, Cory Raji was outstanding in the paint, and even Josh Southern hit 58% of his twos. Last year's Boston College offense ranked 17th in offensive efficiency.

With a legion of freshmen in place of those departed contributors, the degradations are what you see in the table, and the result is an offense that ranks 278th in OE. They've actually gotten a little better at the defensive end this season, and the fact that they are so drastically worse off overall says enough about the nose dive taken at the offensive end. This team has only eclipsed a point per possession three times all year. It's possible to survive with a middling shooting percentage, but not with those turnover and rebound rates.

This Donahue team still takes a ton of threes (43.5% of BC's FGAs are threes), and that's the primary reason for pause given what we've seen out of NC State's defense this season and also given the whole anything-can-happen-in-one-game thing. Goddamn that thing.
