"No one criteria has more weight than another and still, at the end of the day, after serious discussion, we decide on one team over another based on most of what you see below," Livengood said.
Here are the major points of reference:
* rankings by regional advisory committees of coaches
* division I record
* overall RPI
* non-conference record
* non-conference RPI
* conference record
* road record
* record in last 10 games
* injuries to key players
* special circumstances that may have affected a team's performance in certain games such as weather-related travel difficulties
* record against other teams that are under consideration
"The above factors are the ones taken most seriously by the committee and are truly the backbone of the selection process," Livengood said.
