The Gory Details - 1999-2000

The NCAA Selection Committee receives what's called a "Nitty-Gritty" report on the top 105 teams in the RPI to help them decide on the teams invited to and seeding for the NCAA Tournament. Much of the information on that report is duplicated here, in it's unadjusted form. I have included current conference leaders ranked below 105. I have also omitted teams currently under .500 unless they lead their conference. No such team has ever been invited to the tournament as an at-large team. Ineligible teams are also not listed.

* - Conference Champion/Current Leader. Conference leader defined as highest rated team in the RPI among those with the fewest losses, or if regular season play is over in a conference, the highest remaining seed in the conference tournament.

Shaded teams made the tournament.
