UC's RPI and SOS

Postby jct1941 » Sun Dec 03, 2017 8:43 pm

I know that the season games to date are not yet a good basis for these figures (appox. 25% of total games) but UC might not be helpful. UC's RPI now is 103 with a SOS of 318. We better hope they pick up the pace or they might not be considered a GOOD win. Go Xavier!

UC is going to win a lot of games this year and is just getting into the meat of their schedule, starting with a very very good Florida team. They will most probably end up being a top 25 ranked team for the remainder of the season and certainly their RPI and SOS will improve as the season moves on. It will be considered a very good win for Xavier come seeding time.

We have a great schedule for RPI purposes. Looking at http://www.rpiforecast.com/teams/Xavier.html ...

We are over 50% likely to finish with a top 10 RPI assuming we finish with 7 or fewer losses. With 12 losses, we'd still have an RPI in the top 40s and in good shape for the tournament. UC looks to be a top tier win (new this year, NCAA looks at the top 30 for home wins) along with Nova' and Seton Hall. Creighton and Providence are expected to just be on the outside of the top 30).

Only DePaul, Moorehead St., and barely George Washington will likely negatively impact our RPI when it's all said and done and all the opponent's opponent's winning percentages are accounted for etc.

The short answer for UC: We benefit RPI-wise from their winning percentage (50%) and their opponents' winning percentage (25%). They'll have a very good record by their cupcake out of conference schedule followed by their week AAAAAC conference schedule. We pick up more benefit of UC's opponent's winning percentage benefits by Wichita State than get hurt (hardly at all) by East Carolina or whoever the AAAAAC bottom feeder might be this year.
