There are three ranking systems that deserve your attention now that we're closing in on March: 1.) Ratings Percentage Index (RPI), 2.) Jeff Sagarin's Ratings, and 3.) Ken Pomeroy's Tempo-Free Rankings. All use varying measures to reach their goal, but the idea is the same: To rank every team in college basketball from best to worst. Now it's time for us to do the same...

Here's our ingredient list (all weighted equally):

  1. RPI Ranking
  2. Sagarin Rating
  3. KenPom Ranking
  4. Offensive Efficiency Ranking
  5. Defensive Efficiency Ranking
