Women's RPI Ratings

Click here for more on this story

Posted: Monday February 22, 1999 05:25 PM

CARMEL, Ind. (AP) -- The Rating Percentage Index (RPI) has been used by the NCAA since 1982 to supplement the selection of at-large teams and the seeding of all teams for the NCAA women's 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 percent),
  • schedule strength (50 percent) and
  • opponent's schedule strength (25 percent).

    Games against non-Division I opponents are not used in calculating the RPI.
