Welcome to Tuesday Truths, where I look at how well 157 teams in the nation's top 14 conferences are doing against their league opponents on a per-possession basis. For a tidy little homily on why this stuff is so very awesome, go here.

ACC: A specific and effective form of domination from Carolina

Through games of February 6, conference games only
Pace: possessions per 40 minutes
PPP: points per possession Opp. PPP: opponent PPP
EM: efficiency margin (PPP - Opp. PPP)

                      W-L   Pace    PPP   Opp. PPP    EM

Duke and North Carolina renew their always robust discussion tomorrow night in Chapel Hill, and you may have heard that the Blue Devils are limping into this game having lost in OT at home to Miami right before kickoff on Sunday. What about Carolina? Since their disastrous 90-57 loss to Florida State in Tallahassee on January 14, the Heels have been looking a lot more like the Heels: five wins, zero losses, and a per-possession scoring margin of +0.20. That run's been built on total domination on the boards at both ends of the floor. Rebounding plus zero turnovers has given UNC what they need even though they still don't set the world on fire in terms of shooting from the floor. John Swofford I salute you! (Now please clue Mike DeCourcy in on rebound percentages.) By Pomeroy rating this is the weakest ACC since the dawn of tempo-free time, and if the Big Ten were this down they'd be going nuts. But the total lack of navel-gazing and recriminations coming out of the Atlantic Coast this year reinforces what I've always liked about the conference. As a league they just have confidence in the future of their on-court product -- possibly because they make it a policy to raid the Big East every five years. (Har!) It's the same kind of confidence the Big Ten has in their business operations.

Big 12: Celebrating and clarifying Thomas Robinson's domination

                      W-L   Pace    PPP   Opp. PPP    EM

Kansas and Baylor will renew their increasingly robust discussion tomorrow night in Waco. When these two teams met in Lawrence on January 16, Thomas Robinson went nuts, recording a 27-14 double-double and propelling the Jayhawks to a 92-74 victory over the previously undefeated Bears. That game effectively catalyzed a pervasive Robinson-for-national-POY mindset, but can we pause just a second before declaring this race over a la Jimmer? Robinson may end up winning the award, and he may well deserve it by the time the season's over. He's an amazing player having an amazing year -- all the more so, of course, because he couldn't even get on the court last year. Robinson can play for my team any day of the week, believe me. But there can be only one national POY, and if I want to look past the spectacular shot-blocker for a Final Four-track team and instead recognize a dominant defensive rebounding beast who carries the offense for his Final Four-track team, shouldn't we at least consider the one whose shots -- both from the line and from the field -- go in more often than Robinson's? Just asking.

Big East: So Pitt's all better now, right?

                      W-L   Pace    PPP   Opp. PPP    EM
1.  Syracuse         10-1   66.6    1.13    0.94    +0.19

12. Rutgers           4-7   65.5    0.96    1.00    -0.04
13. Villanova         3-8   72.4    1.02    1.08    -0.06

15. Providence        2-9   65.1    1.06    1.15    -0.09
16. DePaul            2-9   73.3    0.97    1.11    -0.14

AVG.                        66.1    1.01

The Panthers look a lot more capable suddenly, yeah. Since the previously injured Tray Woodall returned to action on January 21, Jamie Dixon's team is 4-1. Over that five-game stretch with Woodall, Pitt's been thoroughly normal on defense but day-and-night better on offense. Suddenly the Panthers are hitting 39 percent of their threes, and Ashton Gibbs looks a lot less lonely and overworked. Still, let's not overstate the team's renaissance, one that has transformed them from "bad" to "good" without restoring them fully to what they were last year ('beastly"). Can someone give a dominant Syracuse team some company? The rest of the Big East, and in particular teams like Georgetown and Notre Dame, stand to benefit from how good the Orange are this year. The Hoyas, Irish, and their ilk may end the year not looking so very different than Jim Boeheim's team in terms of conference wins and losses, even though they likely will be different in terms of the threat they pose to NCAA tournament opponents. Such non-Syracuse teams may end up being seeded according to what we're used to seeing from the Big East's second- and third-best programs in a given year.

Big Ten: Northwestern's annual domination of our bubble imagination

                      W-L   Pace    PPP   Opp. PPP    EM
1.  Ohio St.          8-2   66.7    1.11    0.84    +0.27

12. Nebraska          3-8   62.6    0.92    1.08    -0.16

AVG.                        63.0    1.03

As seen here Northwestern's being outscored by 0.08 points for every possession played. So how come people insist on chattering about the Wildcats' chances to make their first-ever NCAA tournament? Simple, Bill Carmody's team has picked its moments. They beat Michigan State in Evanston, they won on the road at Illinois on Sunday right before kickoff, and, rather amazingly, every game they've lost this year has been to an opponent currently ranked in the top 50 by Pomeroy. Note additionally that after a thoroughly un-Northwestern-like start to the Big Ten season, the Cats seem to have found their claws on offense at last, reeling off 1.29 points per trip over their last two games. John Shurna's line over those two contests reads as follows: 52 points on 20-of-28 shooting. Somebody better tell the dominant defensive rebounding beast who carries the offense for his Final Four-track team he doesn't have that Big Ten POY locked up yet!

The other day I was asked to name some Coach of the Year candidates, and if I'd been on top of my game I might have flung Sean Miller's name out there just to see who salutes. You have to take your hat off to what Miller's done this season in Tucson. He donated Derrick Williams to the NBA and, go figure, the Wildcats' offense has tanked. So what's a coach to do? Play defense. Last year's outstanding perimeter D has been combined this season with the Pac-12's best FG defense inside the arc. Arizona's chances of making the NCAA tournament are by no means assured, but should they be so fortunate I wouldn't be surprised to see this group get a double-digit seed and make some oh-so-highly-ranked team's offense absolutely miserable in the round of 64. Sean Miller I salute you! And not just because you wrote our Foreword.

Kentucky and Florida renew their always robust discussion tonight in Lexington, and, having already offered my fulsome tribute to the clear domination displayed by the Wildcats, allow me a few words here on the Gators. Billy Donovan has his group playing like what I've referred to in the past as a SPOT: a slow perimeter-oriented team. As seen here, UF is operating at a very deliberate tempo. They're also shooting a ton of threes -- more than any other team in the league in conference play, and in an SEC with Vanderbilt that's saying something. What's most striking, though, is that Florida is following the SPOT script right to the bitter end, up to and including a deep distrust of offensive boards. Usually that distrust is exhibited by a team populated with guys who will soon be doing your taxes or fixing your kid's teeth. When the distrust is shown by a team that has a star like Patric Young, however, it's a little more unusual. Meantime note that Kenny Boynton is having the most overlooked year in the nation, period. Coming into this season Boynton was something of a hoops-analytic in-joke, one synonymous with tons of attempted threes that never go in. Guess what. This year they're going in. So are his twos. Somebody better tell the spectacular shot-blocker for a Final Four-track team he doesn't have that SEC POY locked up yet!

With the obvious and huge exception of Xavier -- and how could we have known about that whole brawl thing before the fact? -- this league suddenly looks a lot more in line with our preseason expectations. Everyone thought Temple would be really good, and here they are. Michael Eric has returned to action for the Owls, and the 6-11 senior is easing back into action gradually. His reappearance also happens to have coincided with a soft stretch in Temple's schedule. Even granting all of the above, however, the big guy will be handy to have on hand from this point forward. If I were Fran Dunphy I'd have Eric's oft-injured patellas declared national parks.

I know I'm repeating myself, but just look at this league. Five very good teams more or less evenly matched, fighting for what is almost certain to be just one NCAA tournament bid. Last week I pointed my fulsome-tribute gun at Drexel, so today it's VCU's turn. Shaka Smart said goodbye to four key rotation players from last year's Final Four team, so what's a coach to do? Turn your team into the Syracuse of the Colonial: with a low-low turnover rate (No. 1 in CAA play) and tons of takeaways (also No. 1), the Rams get so many more chances to score than their opponents it's unfair. Lone returning starter Bradford Burgess I salute you!

I hope you saw the game in Hattiesburg last week between Southern Miss and Memphis, because it was tremendous. The Golden Eagles prevailed 75-72, extending their remarkable run of success in close games. So far in C-USA play Larry Eustachy's team's won by two versus East Carolina, by five in OT at Tulane, and by four versus UAB and Marshall. Toss in a couple of inexplicably lopsided contests (a 12-point win at ECU, and a 13-point victory at UCF) and the Eagles' heartbreaking 60-58 loss at Memphis on January 11, and you have their conference season in its entirety. The RPI is quite impressed with this run and, of course, with the team's 20-3 record overall, ranking Southern Miss No. 8 nationally. Let's keep an eye on this.

No team -- not even Syracuse or Kentucky -- is dominating their Tuesday Truths league in per-possession terms the way Cleveland State is dominating the Horizon. It's true the conference has taken a step back from what we've seen in recent years, but Gary Waters' team is clearly moving in the opposite direction. Since the first installment of these figures was posted three weeks ago, the Vikings have run away from the rest of the conference and vaulted over 40-plus teams nationally in the Pomeroy ratings. And yet even at this late date no one's talking about CSU, which is weird because they did win at (Festus Ezeli-less) Vanderbilt way back when. Maybe no one's talking because it's true that Cleveland State will still have to win the Horizon tournament to go dancing. Assuming they do, however, you don't want to see this team in the brackets.

If you missed the finish of Creighton's game at Northern Iowa on Saturday, you need to make up for that absence in your hoops life right now (click on the video here). It was the same kind of bang-bang timeout-free ending that we saw from Maryland and Michigan State in the tournament a couple years ago. First the Bluejays' Antoine Young drained a three to tie the game at 62 with 4.6 seconds left. It was a huge shot in a hostile environment, and by rights this should have been Young's moment. But the Panthers' Anthony James drove to the left wing where, incredibly, he stepped back for his three. (Time was running out, the score was tied, and, of course, any made field goal wins the game. Shots are easier the closer you get to the goal, yet James wanted the three points. That newfangled three-point line is deeply ingrained in the imaginations of today's young people, is it not?) Note that James' shot had the required Laettner-esque RBS sequence that purists insist upon for inclusion in the game-winner pantheon: release, buzzer, swish. BONUS non-Anthony James note! Creighton and Wichita State meet up in Omaha on Saturday. Before we get that far, however, Greg McDermott's team has a road date at Evansville tonight that may not be a walk in the park. As seen here the Aces are very poorly described by their 6-7 record.

"Volatile" doesn't begin to describe the Mountain West in per-possession terms. New Mexico looks like the second coming of Butler 2010 here, and I do think the Lobos have been overlooked pretty much all season long. San Diego State looks like the second coming of New Mexico 2010 here, and I do think the Aztecs have been a tad overestimated ever since their big win at home over UNLV -- only problem there being SDSU did win on the road at big, scary, per-possession-wowing New Mexico. Tell you what, let's agree to let the league's members beat on each other for another game or two before drawing any firm conclusions, yes? Mountain West teams have still played just 450 possessions or so in-conference.

Saint Mary's and Gonzaga renew their always robust discussion Thursday night in Spokane, and the Zags need that game purely for continuity's sake. Barring a total collapse Mark Few's team will make the NCAA tournament win or lose, but come on: this is supposed to be Gonzaga's league. If the Bulldogs can't get the job done against Randy Bennett's team in distant inscrutable eastern Washington, the time will have officially arrived to talk non-hackily about SMC running the WCC table, a feat last accomplished by the Zags in 2009.

Nevada lost at home to previously non-threatening Idaho on Saturday night, putting a dent in WAC hopes for a team to claim that coveted "this year's Utah State" label. In other league news Fresno State apparently got fed up with me saying California-based WAC teams can only win when they play each other. The Bulldogs reeled off two straight wins. Rodney Terry I salute you! May your domination continue, and if you need bulletin board material just let me know.
