Big 12 Wins Breakdown: UPDATED

Last week I looked at last year's tournament bracket to trying to determine if a team's record could predict success in the post-season.  After doing that, I'm determined to do it before the tournament begins this year (in hopes that it leads to a glorious victory in the RCT Tourney Pick 'em).  In laying the groundwork for that, I started with the Big 12. 

Records are separated by wins vs 1-25, 26-50, 51-76, and 76+.  The graph I'm posting with this doesn't show wins vs. the  76+ rpi teams.  The Big 12 does well against these schools and it made the graph look awful.

Looking at the big picture, I could see this information being what keeps K-State home for the Tournament.  5 wins vs. top 75 schools?  That just won't cut it. 

Oklahoma and Kansas look good, no real surprise there. 

Texas looks better in this graph than I thought they would.

Colorado, wow.  What can you say?  Good luck, Coach Bzdelik.

Update:  Here's a graph showing wins vs. KenPom's top 75.
