Probability of receiving an invitation to the NCAA
Men s Division I Championship Tournament
The sum of a teams rpi + qw +1/2 sos is a key indicator of the at-large probability. The Division I Mens
Lacrosse Championship is a 17-team, single-elimination tournament. Nine conferences are eligible for
automatic qualification. However, the two lowest-ranked AQ teams, regardless of conference RPI, will
compete in play-in games to determine the final team in the 16-team bracket. The remaining teams are selected
at-large. If a team has an AQ bid then its at-large probabilility goes to 0.00. Primary Criteria for
Selecting At-Large Teams
 Strength of Schedule (SOS) Only Top 10 based on RPI*
 Results of Rating Pertcentage Index (RPI)
 Record against teams ranked 1-5, 6-10, 11-20, and 21+
 Average RPI win (average RPI of all wins)
 Average RPI loss (average RPI of all losses)
[-] Head-to-head competition
[-] Results against common opponents
[-] Significant wins (defeating teams ranked higher in RPI)
[-] Significant losses (defeated by teams ranked lower in RPI)
[-] Location of the contests
Probabilities are based on current data. As rankings and records change, so do the probabilities.
Note that the SOS on Laxbytes computes all games whereas the SOS appearing here considers only the
10 highest ranked teams. The NCAA has excluded Hampton from the RPI calculation.
