Rating System Explained


cbbratings.com's system provides an objective, statistical analysis to rank NCAA college basketball teams. Our goal is to offer fans with a reliable, objective measure of team strength in college basketball.


Each team's rating is determined soleley by the scores of their games played to date. Winning against stronger opponents can significantly improve a team's rating. Unlike traditional rankings, our system takes into account the margin of victory in games.

Home Advantage

These rankings account for the fact that there is a home court advantage which affects the outcomes of games. When calculating the ratings of each team, this home edge is also determined.


We update our ratings daily during the season, reflecting the latest game results.
