2015-16 Overall College Basketball Power Ratings


Last updated: Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - 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 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.

PD = point differential = points for minus points against
SS = strength of schedule ranking (1 is strongest and 351 is weakest)

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