Thread: BPI vs RPI

  1. #1

    UL Basketball BPI vs RPI

    Rating college basketball teams is mainly about identifying NCAA tournament teams. The tournament itself decides who is the ultimate champion, but who deserves to be there?

    There are arguments every year regarding fringe teams. ESPN Bracketologist Joe Lunardi will tell you who is likely to make it. Jay Bilas and other ESPN college basketball analysts want to be able to tell you who should make it. To that end, they asked the ESPN Analytics Department to help them. What we created the College Basketball Power Index, or BPI for short.

    RPI up to 61 after all games yesterday. Per Warren Nolan.

    Nolan still projecting an undefeated conference season.

    NCAA also showing RPI of 61

    Well if that's true then the BPI is terrible too.

    Not true. It's projecting us with the 8th best W-L record. It doesn't figure out a projected BPI.

    Look closer and do math. The list is not in order of projected won loss record, and is called BPI Projection.

    True, it does not show an actual BPI number, but does purport to show BPI ranking.

    In either case it is a projection, so anything can happen.

    I was wrong. Actual math says it is in order of projected won loss record, but labeling is confusing at best.

    How is it we are #60 in Nolan's pole and in 70's in NCAA RPI?

    Clemson's Todd Grantham tore his ACL and is out for the year. That's a big loss for them and could be a factor in our rpi going forward as they are the highest ranked team we've played

    I don't think they count the games against non-Div 1 schools.

    More importantly the selection committee ignores those wins.

    Losing that Clemson player is probably going to cost them many games.
