The last few years I’ve attempted to quantify team’s performances against ranked teams, (historically a big factor in decisions made about getting into playoffs) with a system that gives points to teams for the ranking of their opponents and adds or subtracts the point differential in their games, (adds in a win, subtracts in a loss). The ‘ranking’ points are 25 for playing a #1 ranked team, 24 for playing a #2 ranked team, etc., down to 1 point for playing a 25th ranked team. These points are easily computed by subtracting the ranking number from 26, (26-1 = 25; 26-25 =1, etc.). Over the course of the season, I add the points earned by each team in their games against ranked teams as a sort of standings but have always maintained that this is just one thing to look at in evaluating the team, not a final overall ranking.


WEEK 8 (12/25-31/23)
Stanford beat #4 Arizona 100-82 = +40
Florida Gulf Coast beat #7 Florida Atlantic 72-68 = +23
San Diego State beat #13 Gonzaga 84-74 = +23
Creighton lost to #10 Marquette 67-72 = +11
Marquette beat #22 Creighton 72-67 = +9
Wichita State lost to #2 Kansas 67-86 = +5
California lost to #4 Arizona 81-100 = +3
Central Arkansas lost to #12 Oklahoma 72-88 = -2

UNC Greensboro lost to #21 Texas 37-72 = -30

I said this premature last week so I’ll repeat it here: “Beginning next week the Adams State type teams should disappear from these listings as conference play begins in earnest.”
