2017-18 College Basketball Power Ratings



Last updated: Tuesday, April 3, 2018 - final ratings


I will be updating this page by each Monday & Friday night during the season.
These ratings are based on several factors, including win-loss record, schedule
strength, and margin of victory in games.  The most recent games are counted 
with slightly more emphasis than those played earlier in the season.  The
records shown include ALL OPPONENTS but the power rankings include DIVISION
1 OPPONENTS ONLY.  To determine the approximate point spread between any two teams, simply 
compare the power ratings of the two teams and add 4 points to the home team.  
Pre-season rankings are factored in early in the season.


Team records and ratings by conference


 * = ineligible for NCAA-sponsored postseason play
** = ineligible for conference tournament and NCAA-sponsored postseason play
