RPI Formula Review and Playoff Structure for 2022
As we approach playoff season, below is a quick overview of the KHSAA’s RPI system and playoff system.
In the first two rounds of the playoffs, teams will play corresponding districts, with District One vs. District Two, Three vs. Four, Five vs. Six and Seven vs. Eight. The first-place team will host the fourth-place team from the opposite district, and the second-place team will host the third-place team. The winners will meet in the second round. Most likely the corresponding district (District 2) for Crittenden County will have seeding as #1 Bethlehem, #2 Holy Cross (Louisville), #3 Campbellsville, and #4 Fort Knox.
For the region championship (third round), the pairings will be based on the RPI of the remaining teams as determined at the end of the regular season in all classes with pairings as follows:
- Highest remaining seed in regions 1-4 will be the home team for the fourth-highest remaining in regions 1-4;
- 2nd highest remaining seed in regions 1-4 will be the home team for the third-highest remaining seed in regions 1-4;
The RPI is a calculation of winning percentage (35%), opponents’ winning percentage (35%) and opponents’ opponents winning percentage (30%). Margin of victory is not a part of the formula. Out-of-state opponents are given a .5106 winning percentage. This is the fourth year the KHSAA is using the RPI system for playoff pairings.
The KHSAA also is using a “game value factor” with the RPI formula, based on a 15% difference as class sizes become larger. The game value factors are 1.323 for Class A, 1.521 for 2A, 1.749 for 3A, 2.011 for 4A, 2.313 for 5A and 2.660 for 6A. The “game value factor” helps explain why teams in small-school classes, on average, have higher ratings than teams in big-school classes.
The KHSAA is publishing team-by-team data on its website in an attempt to make the calculations transparent. Click here to access the KHSAA's calculation.
Note that points scored, margin of victory, etc. are not factors in the formula.
