Regional Rankings 1/10/2012

These regional rankings are not official. I use my own formula (heavily based on RPI). All data comes via d3hoops.com.

A few notes:
  • This is not a 'top-25 'poll or power poll. The point of these rankings is not to determine who I actually think are the best teams, but to approximate the NCAA's official regional rankings that are released starting in early February.
  • These rankings attempt to account for in-region winning percentage (primary criterion), in-region strength of schedule (primary), results versus regionally ranked teams (primary), division III winning percentage (secondary criterion), and division III strength of schedule (secondary). It does not currently account for head-to-head matchups or results versus common opponents (both primary criteria), so feel free to ‘adjust’ the rankings accordingly.
  • I 'award' the Pool A bid to the team with the highest RPI (versus all D-III teams). Since 97.6% of the automatic bids are doled out to winners of conference tournaments anyway, I figured this was about as relevant as using actual standings (and 100 times easier).
  • The pre-championship manual has been released, and the home/away multipliers are still in effect, but this year they carry a different (better) weight. For away games, a multiplier of 1.25 is being applied to SOS, and for home games, a multiplier of 0.75 is used.
