2012 Big West Power Rankings
The Big West clearly has a parity problem and it will be an even bigger issue when San Diego State joins the conference.
Long Beach State and UC Santa Barbara were substantially better than the rest of the conference, which makes the four losses of the latter seem like an underachievement (even if two of the losses were to the former).
In order to determine our team rankings, we calculate the difference between a team's own FIC per game and their opponents' FIC for the entire conference season.
The FIC is a single statistical measurement that encompasses things such as scoring efficiency, rebounding, blocked shots, etc. Its purpose is to combine the box score into one statistic, both on a team level and for players.
1. Long Beach State: 24.02
2. UC Santa Barbara: 20.22
3. Cal State Fullerton: 6.38
4. Cal Poly: 0.60
5. UC Irvine: -2.77
6. Pacific: -5.88
7. UC Riverside: -5.93
8. Cal State Northridge: -16.45
9. UC Davis: -20.18
