ELO Ranking for U SPORTS Basketball

For the 2018-19 season, U SPORTS has moved the weekly Top 10 for a number of team sports to a statistical model or a combination of statistics and media voting. Basketball will continue with a coaches vote, but coaches will be provided with the statistics to help guide their voting. The U SPORTS news article outlines the new format.

The statistical approach U SPORTS will be using is based on the Elo Rating System. Mario Kovacevic, a former U SPORTS soccer athlete, has modified the rating system for a number of sports. He has provided an ELO explanation and FAQ document.
