The PairWise Ranking is a system which attempts to mimic the method used by the NCAA Selection Committee to determine participants for the NCAA Division I men's hockey tournament. The PWR compares Teams Under Consideration (TUC), those with a Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) of .500 or more, judging them by four criteria: record against common opponents, head-to-head competition, record against other TUC if a team has played 10 or more games against TUC, and the RPI.
For each comparison won, a team receives one point. The final PWR ranking is based on the number of points (comparisons) won against teams with an RPI at or above .500. Ties are settled by the RPI.
The PWR can be reformatted and redistributed by any media outlet or person, provided USCHO's URL (http://www.uscho.com/) accompanies the results.
Note: A team's record is based only on games against other Division I hockey schools which are eligible for the NCAA Tournament.
