News And Notes…11/21/2018 10:07am CT

Welcome to the 2019 college basketball season. I suppose the biggest news that has barely been announced is that the selection committee has dropped RPI from its main source of selection criteria. It has been replaced with a mystery formula that as far as I know the general public does not have. It’s not a big deal as the committee has been moving away from the RPI the last few years. The formula will be out to the public soon enough.

One thing we learned from last years selections is that a team is judged evenly from the first game of the year to the last. Arizona State plunged in the rankings as the year went on but barely survived on its conference with an 8-10 record, But that great start was judged as importantly as its dismal ending. Another thing learned was that a team must have a decent win on its record. USC finished with a 34 RPI and 12-6 conference record. But its best win was over Middle Tenn. USC was left out of the tourney.
