If a top 16 RPI playoff bracket were to be announced today the seedings would look like this as of MAY 1st, 2017.
Prep National Title Playoff Picture as of May 1, 2017 where anything could happen
*out of ~ 70 boys teams in the RPI
Need to have an RPI of .54 or greater (top 12) which leaves 18 teams (two play in games).
Teams in the RPI, but out of the playoff picture as they do not play enough games vs. NE Preps to win the Prep National Title, are Hill Ontario, IMG, Moses Brown, Lawrenceville and Navy – all great teams.
⬇️ or ⬆️ from last week followed by the amount of spots they raised or dropped (NR means not ranked last week). Nothing means they stayed the same.
Playing teams consistently that do not have winning records does not help your RPI. Losing to teams with strong schedules and records does not hurt your RPI. (Examples Westminster, Tabor and Andover)
Winner of seed #16 play in game ONE (⬇️ 2 Holderness will host play in game vs ⬇️1 Andover) with winner @ #1 Exeter
Winner of seed #15 play in game TWO (⬇️ 5 Brewster will host play in game vs (NR) Westminster) with winner @ #2 Brunswick
⬇️ 3 #14 Rivers @ ⬆️ 6 #3 New Hampton
(NR) #13 Trinity Pauling @ ⬇️ 1 #4 St. Sebastian’s
(NR) #12 Tabor @ ⬆️ 1 #5 Deerfield
⬆️ 2 #11 Governor’s @ ⬆️ 2 #6 Belmont Hill
⬆️ 6 #10 Salisbury @ #7 Nobles
