Re: Worst Division I Teams

I looked at the teams with the worst records and then looked at the teams that they lost to and the margin of defeat. Purely unscientific, but I bet I am not too far off. I was tempted to put the whole SWAC on the list.

Looks like someone beat me to the punch and made a listing of 25:

Re: Worst Division I Teams

I'd have to nominate UMBC, Colgate and St. Francis (PA) for the top 3 spots. Granted St. Francis has 2 wins while there are still some winless and 1 win teams out there, St. Francis has 2 wins by a total of 4 points, one of them being Colgate. I'd round out the top 5 with Holy Cross and Savannah state.

Holy Cross is awful. 0-8 so far this year after a pretty bad showing record wise last year (not sure exactly what it was something around 11-19). Also, on their 3rd coach in 3 years.

The correct answer is reverse the SWAC standings.

Re: Worst Division I Teams

According to KenPom your two big omissions would be SIU-Edwardville (3rd worst) and Chicago St (5th worse), and Savannah St is 44th worst.

As for the names of any of those teams, I have no clue.

Re: Worst Division I Teams

UMBC and Savannah St are looking pretty bad right now but keep an eye on Centenary, they have lost by 25+ in their last 2 games.

Re: Worst Division I Teams

SIU-E is in way over their head in the big leagues. Heck, they were a moderately successful D-II program. They have as much business in D-I athletics as South Harmon Institute of Technology.

Poor Centenary. Most turnovers and worst free throw shooting team in the country. Yikes.

Re: Worst Division I Teams

I concur with Pomeroy, Southern is the worst. Oh wait Centenary passed them somehow.

Southern is 344th in offensive efficiency
Southern is 342nd in defensive efficiency

They are in the 300s for each of the 4 factors.

Most definitely. Basketball loses a lot of money for those schools too and it's not like we're talking about places with highly regarded academics in most cases. Those scholarships could be much better used in other areas of the university.
