NWC: 11 Years of History

The mammoth Northwest Conference just completed its 11th year in existence. It has always been the home to either 13 or 14 schools, and has always included the 1A, 2A and 3A classifications.

Mt. Vernon was one of the charter members, and Lakewood is the latest to join the conference, having been picked up as a free-agent from the Cascade Conference last summer.

As we pick up our story, you will remember that all the district tournaments have been completed. There are now 16 teams left in each classification who are on their way to the regional round. The teams that remain all have an RPI score that has been following their progress all season. They will be placed in order from 1-16. And now, back to our story…

State RPI - What you need to know

The WIAA has made further changes to its state basketball tournaments, beginning with the 2017 version.

The changes begin with a new RPI system, which will be used to seed the 16 finalists once district tournaments have been completed. The RPI system is being used to try to avoid circumstances in which the top teams in the state play each other too early in the tournament.

The RPI system will score each team using three layers:

1. Team win-loss percentage, worth 25 percent.

2. Win-loss percentage of a team’s opponents, worth 50 percent.

3. Win-loss percentage of the opponents of a team’s opponents, worth 25 percent.

District Tourney Wrap

The 2A boy’s district tournament was the most balanced in years. I thought it would be like pouring gasoline too fast into a small funnel. You spill all over the place. That’s what this tourney did. We spilled really good teams all over the place.

Going in, I thought Anacortes was the team to beat, and then no less than six teams with a good shot at the final two spots. None of which would have been a surprise to grab them.

This could go several different ways. By simply reading this, you may experience a headache. You might find some valuable information that you have been wondering about. You may also be entertained. If this blog was an RPI, I’d say 25% information / 50% headache / 25% entertainment. But I am willing to tweak the numbers as the seasons go along.
