The NCAA is making the information it uses to field the 68-team men’s basketball tournament more available to the public.
Here’s a link to the official Rating Percentage Index (RPI) page on the NCAA website and an explanation why the NCAA uses it as the top criteria in determining who makes the tournament.
Perhaps more importantly, the NCAA is sharing with fans the Nitty Gritty Report, which contains in-depth team information about strength of schedule, performance against teams in the top 50 and home and away records.
Washington doesn’t fare well in the latest report.
The Huskies are 82nd, one spot lower than they’re RPI. They’re non-conference RPI is 117. They’re 4-5 on the road, 1-6 against teams in the top 50 RPI and 4-5 against teams in the top 200 RPI.
