NCAA PREVIEW / INSIDE THE TOURNAMENT

Rpi Rank

March 15, 2004

The Rating Percentage Index (RPI) has been used by the NCAA since 1981 to supplement the selection of at-large teams and the seeding of all teams for the NCAA basketball tournament. This list is an independent duplication of the RPI without input from the NCAA, which does not release the RPI to the public. It is derived from three component factors: Division I winning percentage (25%), schedule strength (50%) and opponents' schedule strength (25%).

Tournament teams RPI rating: x-automatic bid; a-at-large selection.
