    I was curious since we are about half way through the season to see where teams were ranked from an analytical standpoint. For this exercise I used BPI, Massey, KenPom and Sagarin.

    I took the top 30 only because that's all the BPI has released at this point. I then averaged the 4 rankings into one. Here's the top 30:

    1. Villanova
    2. WVU
    3. Kentucky
    4. Kansas
    5. Virginia
    6. Duke
    7. Baylor
    8. Louisville
    9. UNC
    10. UCLA
    11. Gonzaga
    12. Florida
    13. Wisconsin
    14. Arizona
    15. Purdue
    16. Florida State
    17. Cincinnati
    18. Oregon
    19. Creighton
    20. Xavier
    21. Butler
    22. Clemson
    23. Notre Dame
    24. St. Mary's
    25. Indiana
    26. Iowa State
    27. Wichita State
    28. Virginia Tech
    29. Miami
    30. Michigan

    I think getting points for beating up on way inferior teams is a bit overrated. In any case, conference play will correct that.

    Other than that, the list looks pretty good. The 1-25 RPI will keep rotating so your teams record against 1-25 will be volatile.

    I used to do this a few years ago on here. I think it's cool because it gives you a combined look at how all the metrics judge teams as opposed to just human rankings where 75% of the people haven't watched more than a handful of teams Hames
