Computer basketball rankings: Wilson girls No. 1 in inaugural release

Standout guard Bethany Montgomery, coach Michelle Birge and the Wilson Rams debut at No. 1 in 3A in the Score Czar computer basketball rankings.

Last year, The News Tribune began a partnership with Scott Odiorne, also known as the “Score Czar,” to publish computer-based high school football rankings.

And this winter, he has started basketball rankings, too.

Here is how he explains the overall process:

The computer rankings take the outcome of each game and endeavors to capsulize the data created by the final score by placing a numerical rating on how each team did compared to the caliber of their opponent.

The computer takes Points Allowed divided by Points For, multiplied by strength of schedule to determine each team rating.

    Just what we need, a computer to do the rankings for high schoolers. It’s strange how the top 5 in 3A boys are all up north, they must be THAT much better <>
