It's Brick Year

I've touched on this a few times but haven't really gotten a grip on just how down the ACC's offenses are this season.  In the four years prior to 2010, the average ACC offense scored pretty consistently in the 104-105 pts/100 poss range.  This year...

Conf. Games Only OFF_EFF eFG% 2FG% 3FG% Best Worst # > 1.0 PPP
2006 104.8 50.4 48.2 36.8 113.3 97.0 8
2007 105.4 51.0 50.0 35.4 112.6 95.1 11
2008 104.5 50.2 48.9 35.4 113.3 97.5 10
2009 104.1 49.2 47.7 35.1 115.9 91.7 9
2010 100.4 46.5 46.0 32.0 111.2 96.3 4


OFF_EFF, eFG%, 2FG%, 3FG% = League-wide averages.
Best = League's most efficient offense in a given year.
Worst = League's least efficient offense in a given year.
# > 1.0 PPP = Number of teams that averaged 1+ pts/poss.

There are plenty of specific examples of decline in action.  For instance: NC State shot a league-best 53.4% in '09.  This season?  A league-worst 43.1%.  First to worst!  That's how it's supposed to go, right?  Hmm.  Maybe we're doing this wrong.
