The Gory Details - 2002-2003

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 its 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. During the regular season, I define the current conference leader to be the team with the fewest conference losses, using the RPI as a tiebreaker. After that, I use the highest remaining seed in the conference tournament.

"Road" is true road games only and "NC" is neutral court games.

Except for the column labelled "ND1", which is a team's record vs non-Division I opponents, all records reflect games between Division I teams only.
