2023 March Madness: 5 Best Offenses

1. Gonzaga Bulldogs

The Bulldogs struggled defensively this year. But the offense didn't have any problems. Gonzaga had an effective field goal percentage of 58.5% while hitting 38.4% from long range and 58.9% from inside the arc this season.

The Bulldogs rarely allowed their shots to get blocked. They rarely allowed steals on the offensive end, either. Gonzaga earned 31.1% of offensive rebounds and hit the foul line at a high rate. And it never hurts to have one of the best offensive players in the country Drew Timme, who ranks in the top 500 in almost every offensive category.

2. Baylor Bears

The Baylor Bears probably have the most dynamic guards in the tournament. LJ Cryer, Adam Flagler, and Keyonte George have turned Baylor into one of the best offenses in the nation.

The Bears have shot a 53.1% effective field goal percentage while earning nearly 35% of offensive rebounds. Baylor has also hit 37.2% from three and made under 75% of foul shots this season.

3. Iowa Hawkeyes

All of these teams have something in common. These teams are incredible offensively and struggle defensively. Add Iowa to the list.

Iowa turned the ball over only 14.1% of the time while shooting 34.3% from three and 52.1% from inside the arc. The offense earned 32.2% of offensive rebounds and got to the foul line throughout the regular season.

4. Arizona Wildcats

Arizona was the Pac-12's best offense this year. The Wildcats shot 38.2% from long range and 56.6% from inside the arc. Sometimes, turnovers can get a bit high, but the Wildcats still hauled in 31.1% of offensive rebounds and got to the foul line at a high rate, despite shooting 70.9%.

5. UConn Huskies

Toledo has been better offensively than UConn. However, Toledo didn't make the tournament. So it's on to the next best, which is UConn. The Huskies dominated the offensive glass this season, earning 39.2% of offensive rebounds to lead college basketball. UConn also shot the ball at a high average.
