RRWP is the round-robin winning percentage calculated by KRACH. c-HHWP and c-RRWP are the "criterion head-to-head winning percentage", and "criterion round-robin winning percentage", which should be equivalent at this point in the season, and both correspond to a "KRACHified" criterion where the strength of the opponents in the relevant set of games is considered. This is just the strength-of-schedule adjustment contained in our proposed modification to the NCAA selection criteria.

Game Results

Include RIT?

Atlantic Hockey member RIT is in their second year of probation this season, so they're not eligible for the NCAA tournament, but we've been told games against them will be counted in the NCAA's ratings. You can, however, chose to exclude them for comparison.
