lots of things are posted that is free available elsewhere, plus they put in the effort to summarize the relevant info

I've subscribed to Kenpom before and it's got a ton of info that you can sort in different ways, and tracks many metrics

I doubt all of that is available when you google it

I don't have premium but Cal basketball in January is playing at a much higher level than we were in November and December. Any statistical model that averages all of our play is going to underrate us going forward. That said, the PAC-12 in general is not highly rated this year so beating other teams is hurting them more than it is helping us and our best (long) shot is winning the PAC-12 Tourney.
