Power Ranking Update – Week 5

Hello KVKL,

I didn’t have as much time this week to write something about each team, but I still wanted to update my power ranking as we head into the first week of pool play. I thought it would be interesting to break the teams up into groups of 6 to see where this ranking agrees with where teams actually ended up, and where it differs. For example, it would have been impossible for three teams from the Amelia Earhart to end up in the 2 pool, but maybe they should have?

Take a look at which pool your team should have landed in below, and remember this is just for fun!

As always, best of luck to all teams this week besides the one playing mine!

–Jake

Bonus: Divisional Strength

It will be really interesting to watch how things shake out as we start getting some more comparative data from interdivisional play.

Here is where the divisions stack up as we enter pool play.

John Brown — Average Team Rank: 17.33
Wilt Chamberlain — AVT: 17.5
Clyde Tombaugh — AVT: 18.67
Amelia Earhart — AVT:  18.83
Deron Belt — AVT: 19
Danny Manning — AVT: 19.67

Right now, the parity in divisions is pretty insane. In a perfect world, each division would have an AVT of 18.5, so it is hard to imagine things getting more even than right now, when less than 2.5 points separates the strongest division from the weakest.

That said, it’s worth pointing out that the round robin divisional play is going to push towards parity because each division will have the same number of wins. The same is not true in pool play, so I expect that by the next PR (week 7), we will see a division or two already rising to the top.

Here is the spread sheet.
