2017-18 Overall 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 and strength of schedule 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.


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
