MyBB DI Men’s Basketball Committee redefines quality win
New-look team sheets will place greater emphasis on road wins

“We consulted with experts within the coaching and analytics fields who looked at historical data, based on winning percentages by game location, to come up with these dividing lines within each of the columns,” said Mark Hollis, the director of athletics at Michigan State and the current chair of the committee. “The emphasis of performing well on the road is important, as was the need for teams not to be penalized as much for road losses. Beating elite competition, regardless of the game location, will still be rewarded, but the committee wanted the team sheets to reflect that a road game against a team ranked 60th is mathematically more difficult and of higher quality than a home game versus a team ranked 35th. We feel this change accomplishes that.”

I think that makes sense. Wonder if it might provide a push to some P5 members to go on the road more?

P5 teams get plenty of chances at quality road wins in conference. What you will see is that the .500 acc team that got hot one night and upset a 20 win ACC school on the road will get a bubble bid over a 26-6 MAC team that could only get games against Kentucky and Kansas at their place with their refs, and outside of that played nobody because no one would schedule them.

I would hope a win at ODU or UTEP would have more value than a home win vs a paid for team.
