    It is numbers with the NCAA. Go to https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/icehockey-women/d3 and click on the East Public PDF and it will show you how the NCAA rankings are arrived at.

    Secondary is only taken into consideration if the other criteria are a tie. In this case it is not needed. At least that is the way it was explained previously.

    I disagree with how they arrived at those numbers. Morrisville is second in results vs ranked opponents, but they are 8th in In-Division win-loss percentage and 17th in Strength of Schedule. Hamilton should be 7th. Morrisville is 8th as all the other teams near them in In-Division Win-Loss % have no wins against ranked opponents.

    Indeed it is not. Conn has 2 of 3 over Amherst in the primary criteria and is ranked ahead.

    I just looked again at the sheet. Morrisville does win in win/loss % (.696 to .625)in division and resuls vs ranked opponents (.667 to .325). Hamilton wins in SOS (.547 to .508) Therefore Morrisville is ranked ahead of Hamilton because the secondary is not considered.


    Conn. is ranked ahead without considering the secondary criteria.

    like I said...better record and swept them, so impossible [except in hockeyeastland] to get ranked behind them
