Scoring Trends for Winning Teams

by

Here’s an interesting tidbit I started researching this morning!  Association average points per game, and number of winning teams scoring 100 or more points per game.

96-97 – 96.9 (5 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
97-98 – 95.6 (4 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
98-99 – 91.6 (strike shortened, 1 team with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
99-00 – 97.5 (4 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
00-01 – 94.8 (4 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
01-02 – 95.5 (3 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
02-03 – 95.1 (3 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
03-04 – 93.4 (2 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
04-05 – 97.2 (6 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
05-06 – 97.0 (3 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
06-07 – 98.7 (6 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
07-08 – 99.9 (8 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
08-09 – 100 (8 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)
09-10  – 98.7 (incomplete, 10 teams with a winning record scoring more than 100ppg)

Thanks for making it fugly with me, Coach.

Clearly, in the past 3 years, scoring more PPG typically means winning more games.  Back in 03-04, defense was king.  Just an interesting way to quantify how the game is changing I think . . .
