Possession-Based Olympics

Kevin Pelton over at Basketball Prospectus provides a brief game-by-game recap of the first round of pool play. He will apparently do a recap of each game in pool play, and maintain possession-based stats for the 12 teams assigned to the two different (A and B) pools. Stats include game pace, Offensive and Defensive Ratings, with finer detail provided by Dean Oliver's four factors -- eFG%, OR%, DR%, FTM/FGA and TO%. Pelton promises to update his ratings and rankings for each round. Well, this should get me through the next few weeks, while I try to track down box scores from Notre Dame's trip to Ireland.
