Well, a low strength of schedule means the teams you played against suck. This early in the season, winning teams will probably automatically have a very low strength of schedule simply because the teams they won against will have a bad record, and vice versa. Take the Monarchs, for instance. They have the highest strength of schedule because they lost to the Storm, Lynx, and Lifelocks. Wink If they'd won, their strength of schedule would be lower because those three teams would be several wins shorter than they are now. (...this whole strength of schedule thing confuses me too, but that's how I've figured it, at least.)

Yeah, it's weird.

The Monarchs & Lifelocks being at opposite ends of that list is odd given that we have played each other twice and split the wins.
There must be other factors in the equation otherwise it is a pretty pointless ranking system. (but I'm too lazy to look up the formula atm, so I'll just stay here making ignorant comments about it Razz )

Yep, that's pretty much the explanation, at least early in the season.

It's sort of circular mathematical reasoning:

"The reason my team has a low strength of schedule is because the teams we played against suck."
"The reason the teams we played against suck is because they don't win games."
"The reason they have no wins in the few games they've played...is because we were the ones that beat them."

In order to counter for that, RPI Strength of Schedule takes into account not just your opponent's wins and losses...but your opponent's opponent's wins and losses, i. e. it tries to give back what it took away from you. However, since the balance is about 2/3 to 1/3 on the above, teams that win early and often will take a hit in the strength of schedule, but that hit will go away as more games are played by all the teams in the league.

I know the Sun beat a bad team (record-wise), but why is their pythagorean projection less after the win than before? (.722 vs .709)

Pythagorean Projection projects what the winning percentage of a team will be based on its total points scored (a) and points against (b).

The formula usually used is:

(a^(16.5))/(a^(16.5) + (b^(16.5)).

For Connecticut, the value before the game was (570)^16.5/((570)^16.5 + (538)^16.5), which equals 0.721785.

After the Detroit game, the numbers were (665)^16.5/((665)^16.5 + (630)^16.5), which equals 0.709325.

So currently, the projection based entirely on points scored and points allowed is that the Sun will win 70.9 percent of the games they play this year.

Why did the numbers go down after the win? First, the win was a close win, 95-92. In effect, we're adding the same number - "k" - to the value of a and b in the equation above. The equation becomes

((a+k)^16.5)/((a+k)^16.5 + (b+k)^16.5)

If the values of k were to dominate, the above would converge to approximately k^16.5/(2*k^16.5), or 0.500. As a rule, adding equal amounts to points scored and points allowed forces the result closer to 1/2 than it was before.

Second, this makes sense in a practical way. Assume the difference between a team's points scored and points allowed is 45. Early in the season, there won't be very many points scored and points allowed, and the difference of 45 will have a great effect on the final results - this reflects that with so much of the season left to play, there could still be great variance between the current total and the ultimate total.

As the season progresses though, and more games are played, there will be a large number of both points scored and points allowed, and the 45 point difference will make less of an impact - it is much more likely that the team's true record is something close to .500.
