RPI Brief
Z-Power

Welcome to the Women\'s College Basketball Power Ratings.  These quite unofficial ratings can be used to gain some insight into the relative strength of individual teams as well as an idea of how teams will be seeded in the NCAA Tournament using the RPI standings.  

The following ratings are available:  RPI (plus several in-house variants), Z, STD, and P power ratings (note the RPI is not a power rating per se).   All of the ratings can be accessed by clicking on the link to the left for "The Current Ratings."  Briefs for the RPI and Z are also available.

The RPI\'s don\'t utilize the rumored penalties for playing non-Division I teams, or any of the weightings for strength of schedule (see Jerry Palm\'s RPI FAQ) I think these are fairly accurate otherwise (sans incorrect/missing scores). I\'ve used the same program to calculate the men\'s RPI, and the numbers come up almost exactly the same as Jerry Palm\'s. The Z rating is my own concoction that measures a teams performance compared to their opponents other foes.  The STD and P Power ratings are similar in concept. but use a different scheme for determining a teams relative power.  Each power rating also includes an offensive and defensive rating. You may also want to visit Curtis Schmelling\'s page which has his version of the RPI as well as his N-Power rating.  Jerry Palm now also runs a women\'s RPI
