RIP, RPI: The NCAA has a new ranking system for college basketball teams

Post by J.J. » Wed Aug 22, 2018 2:32 pm

The NCAA announced Wednesday that it has replaced the Rating Percentage Index as its primary tool for evaluating teams’ resumes for the NCAA tournament. A new ranking system, the NCAA Evaluation Tool, will be used starting this coming season.

“What has been developed is a contemporary method of looking at teams analytically, using results-based and predictive metrics that will assist the Men’s Basketball Committee as it reviews games throughout the season,” said Dan Gavitt, senior vice president of basketball for the NCAA. “While no perfect rankings exist, using the results of past tournaments [as test sets] will help ensure that the rankings are built on an objective source of truth.”
