Message of the Day

Daily Upsets: An observation of D-1 Men's Basketball

It is a big factor if a team is both an above 60% W-L and a "zero VMI", against a ranked team.  Of course, this still needs more study, but even if a visiting team sports a "zero VMI" it still appears to be a big concern for a superior overall team.  Another study that needs to be done is on smaller than 7 VMI ranges, it is starting to appear that shooting is affected, but is impossible for the players to detect, so they may adjust to what they see and feel, or not. Something we don't often think about--Three Point shooters are always off their game.  They are attempting to be 100% shooters, but 45% has become the acceptable standard and 30% just gets a shrug of the shoulders.  What your job is; is to identify which player(s) might be less "off their game!"

I don't think VMI had anything to do with the loss-it appears Houston players and maybe coaches just overlooked Temple.

I can't imagine that a  0.60 VMI at home would be enough to throw any home team off their free throws.

Colorado came close to overlooking Washington State as well.

Division 1 Bracket Busters Men's and Women's Basketball and the VMI
At Basketball VMI: ...We follow each D-1 Basketball team’s schedule, identifying where the team played and the elevation of the arena.  Since the altitude, temperature and humidity at game time affects how freely the ball flies through the game time air density, the players must adjust their shooting distance by various amounts from a “minute” differential--to a greater amount of force, in order to center the longer 3-pt shot into the rim.  Any amount over ...

The 3-Point Shot in Basketball

Extreme Changes in Barometric Pressure Cause the Shot to be
Long or Short by Several Inches.

 

According to the Noah's Arc "basketball shot analyzer" creator, "at the best arc (45 degrees), the shooter has only 1-1/2 inches of room between the edge of the rim and the surface of the basketball."
Basketball VMI tracks the teams', every game day, and displays a team index for your analysis.

We are not tracking the tiny ups and downs of the air pressure, but the exposure of the players to the big ones as they travel to different arenas.  BasketballVMI provides you with a daily index a day or more ahead of game-time so that you can identify performance issues for teams and individuals in advance.  The "Team VMI's" listed within our reports identify changes in the shooters' "feel" to launch a basketball the precise distance to make the shot.  See https://www.noahbasketball.com/ for analysis of the "perfect shot."

If a perimeter shooter misses, or makes more shots than normal for him, the rebounders from both teams will be affected by greater or fewer opportunities to increase their scores, as well.  

By adding our index to your formulas, you will soon be able to identify certain teams, players and VMI's that give you an advantage no one else has.

The VMI Index  

Extreme Changes in Barometric Pressure Cause the Shot to be Long or Short by Several Inches, and only 1-1/2 inches off-center toward any edge of the rim will cause a potential miss.

A minus index number such as minus 2.5 means the perimeter shooters on this team will tend to shoot a little short in today's game.  A larger index number, such as a minus 10.25 means a shot will tend to be shorter yet.  

A plus index number, such as a plus 5.0 means the perimeter shooters on this team will tend to shoot long in today's game.  A larger index number, such as a plus 15.0 means a perimeter shot will tend to be longer yet. 

The VMI Power Index

The VMI Power Index is built from games performed within today's unique VMI Range for both the home team and the visiting team.  Games played within other VMI Ranges are eliminated from the power indicators, so you see the historical results from only those games played within today's VMI Range of +/-5.99.  You will be able to view both the VMI Index and the Power Index on all the game match-up displays.  Both will be visible in parentheses following the team name.
