High School Sports

Charting teams qualifying for state based on RPI ranking

In this chart, we are monitoring the top-30 ranked teams in boys and girls basketball in Class 4A to 1A.

We’ll give a thanks to Matthew Evans, a Tri-Cities resident who has devised his own ranking formula for high school sports. He runs a blog, Evans Rankings, where he posts his rankings.

He’s done a nice job tracking all the district and multi-district tournaments that qualify teams for the state tournaments.

On this chart, we’ll bold teams that have already clinched a state tournament berth, and we’ll remove teams that have been eliminated from contention.

This will help you figure out how teams will be seeded into the state tournament brackets.

We’ll update this chart daily.
