It’s a cool Monday morning in the Antelope Valley and the AVC basketball team is getting ready for its first conference road game.  Sporting a 16-1(2-0 Conference) record and looking to finally have its complete team ready to go since the start of the season…minus three injury red-shirt…CCCAA has put out the RPI.  So what is RPI?

The Rating Percentage Index (RPI) has been used by the NCAA men’s basketball committee since 1981, and officially by the women’s basketball committee since 1984, as supplemental data to help select at-large teams and seed all teams for the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments. The three component factors which make up the RPI are as follows:

Factor I is the team’s Division I winning percentage and is 25 percent of the RPI. Games against opponents are not included in the normal RPI. For the men, beginning in 2004-05, and for the women, beginning in 2011-12, home wins are weighted 0.6, neutral wins 1.0, and road wins count 1.4, and road losses are 0.6, neutral losses 1.0, and home losses 1.4.

Factor II is the team’s opponents’ winning percentage, or the team’s schedule strength, excluding results against the team in question. It is 50 percent of the RPI.

Factor III is the team’s opponents’ opponents’ winning percentage, or the team’s opponents’ strength of schedule, excluding results against the team in question. Factor III is 25 percent of the RPI.
