Women's Hoops: Teams ranked by point differential

A long overdue look at the women's basketball standings. Same idea as with the men. Championship seeding in brackets (keep in mind that the Huskies made it as the host team) and the final matchup in bold.

Average points per game, by conference

West, 68.5
Ontario, 65.2
Atlantic, 64.7
Quebec, 61.0

Overall we had 65.7 points per game, meaning Canada West was by far the toughest league. Or at least the one with the most points.

Most points per game compared to conference average
Calgary, 83.2 (+21.6%)
Simon Fraser, 82.0 (+19.8%)
Laurentian, 76.5 (+17.3%)
McMaster, 76.1 (+16.7%)
Toronto, 74.2 (+13.7%)
Cape Breton, 71.6 (+10.6%)
Concordia, 67.4 (+10.5%)

Fewest points per game against, compared to conference average
UBC, 52.9 (-22.8%)
McMaster, 52.5 (-19.5%)
Simon Fraser, 58.8 (-14.1%)
York, 59.2 (-9.2%)
Carleton, 59.4 (-8.9%)
Regina, 62.4 (-8.9%)

Saskatchewan were basically a league average team, certainly in tough for their quarterfinal matchup against the Marauders, one of two teams to beat the league average by more than 10% on both sides of the ball. Calgary and York probably had a better claim on that playoff berth than did the Huskies, but that's the risk you take with this host team format. (With the men, it's not as glaring.)

Neither Simon Fraser nor McMaster made the final, though. That's not to say this analysis is useless--certainly beats studying for exams, am I right?--because, after all, that great Carleton-Acadia game from the men's bracket involved the only two teams on both regular-season lists.

Finally, a look at the conference averages for both the women and the men, presented without comment:

Average points per game, by conference (women/men)
West, 68.5 / 78.6
Ontario, 65.2 / 74.0
Atlantic, 64.7 / 76.6
Quebec, 61.0 / 75.7
