RPI Background

RPI is a tool developed for all team sports using the official KHSAA/Riherds Scoreboard data, modeled after, but not identical to, similar measurement tools. It is provided for a variety of reasons, including district tiebreaking and football bracketing, and as a means to increase publicity, interest and promotion of interscholastic athletics. RPI is also used as a tiebreaking/contest-result mechanism to decide seeded district games that are not played by the deadline. RPI rankings are updated on an hourly basis but are not calculated for teams with missing scores from the previous day. Therefore, it is essential for results to remain comprehensive for accuracy.

Statistics and RPI Release

Initial stat leader reports for the sports on the Riherds/KHSAA Scoreboard are typically released at the start of week 4 of the regular season, followed by each sport’s initial RPI rankings at the start of week 5. Initial stat leader reports for the 2023-24 basketball season were released on Dec. 18.
