OSU is 13.7 in nine years under Thad Matta. The year before he got there they were terrible under Jim O'Brien (117) and that brought their average down significantly.
Call it luck, clutchness or Izzo coaching, but Michigan St. has a way of regularly outperforming what they do in the regular season in the NCAA tournament.
One more thing is that if you just averaged the schools that Calipari coached over the last 10 years (Memphis and Kentucky), the rating would be 12.1, firmly in third place over that time.
