December 8 Update: The First Monday Update of the Year

Today is the inaugural S-Factor run of the 2014-2015 season! And boy does it look weird!

Most of this is due to the fact that it is still so very early in the women's hoops season that RPI hasn't sorted itself out yet.  This induces a lot of error in not only the RPI part of the S-Factor's algorithm, but also in the top 50 or top 25 win factors.  Right now wins over UC Riverside, Fresno State and Cal State Bakersfield (to pick on California teams) will count towards the wins-against-top-25-opponents category.

It will be interesting to see if the S-Factor's new algorithm evolves to a higher plane of understanding about UConn as the season progresses, or if it will continue being mired in derp by ranking nineteen other teams ahead of the Huskies.

Conferences with multiple bids:
ACC: 8
SEC: 7
Big Ten: 7
PAC 12: 6
Big 12: 5
American: 3
Big East: 2
Mountain West: 2
