First, a look at Georgetown's raw pace, both in all games and in conference regular season games only, during the JT3 era:
Year All BE
2005 60.2 59.9
2006 59.0 58.6
2007 59.7 58.9
2008 62.1 62.3
2009 64.2 63.5
Next, back when John Gasaway was posting at Big Ten Wonk, he introduced a stat he called ePoss, or "effective possessions" which is simply a team's pace (possessions per 40 minutes) less the percentage of possessions on which they turn the ball over. Here's how those numbers have looked for the Hoyas:
All games Big East
Year ePoss TO Rate ePoss TO Rate
2005 47.0 21.9 46.6 22.3
2006 47.9 18.8 47.6 18.6
2007 46.6 22.0 45.6 22.6
2008 48.9 21.2 48.7 21.9
2009 50.3 21.6 49.5 22.2
From both sets of numbers, it's clear that the Hoyas played faster this year than they did last year, and that last year was faster than 2007. 2007 stands out, in ePoss terms, as a clear aberration in terms of being slow-even slower, in fact, than the nominally slower 2006.
If/when I come up with something interesting to say about these numbers, I'll put up a post accordingly. Other reader(s), feel free to come up with potentially interesting comments of your own.
UPDATE (3/26/09 2215 CT): Per request, I've updated the table with TO Rate for each year, broken down between all games and just BE conference play:
I'll put up a separate post with the numbers for Hoya opponents.
