The answer to my question about NCAA versus NBA efficiency can be found here where we see that college teams are much more variable in their performance levels than are NBA teams. The most efficient NBA offense belongs to the Phoenix Suns who score 111.11 points per hundred possessions. Thirty NCAA teams, from Florida at the top of the list with 118.9 down to Long Beach State at 111.2, do better than that. Houston has the top pro defense, giving up just 96.8 points per hundred possessions, and there are fifty-six NCAA teams who give up fewer than that. What's more, the higher-seeded NCAA teams tend to both do better than Phoenix on offense and better than Houston on defense.

The average NCAA efficiency level of 102.1 is, however, lower than the NBA has been in recent years, though about where it was during the offensive nadir a little while back.
