If you had the power to tweak the RPI what would you do?

When it gets to the Final 8, use the RPI to fully seed, not just seed  Districts 1-4, and 5-8.  Seed it 8 at 1, 7 at 2, 6 at 3 and 5 at 4..

 

Actually scrapping RPI is the best and go back to sister districts.

I don't necessarily agree on scrapping the RPI all together, we need some kind of computer model to make sure the best teams are not match up in the Second and third round. Now i do think reseeding the final eight 1-8 is a big deal. I remember in previous years St. X had to play Male in the 3rd round, because they were both in the " West" side of the state. The final 8 just needs to be seeded 1-8, a team should not be at the mercy of where there school is located.

As far as in state teams, they need to put more weight on if you play up in class and lose to a really good team, then you should get rewarded for that. As it currently stands, if you play a good much

Why not just use CalPreps, instead?

It really is very simple - fix the strength of schedule calculation. You can't just go by what class a school is in to determine how strong an opponent they are. RPI is way too reliant on the class le

In order to get the best 8 teams...4 teams and 2 teams you also have to scrap intra district play the first 2 rounds.  If you seed 1-8 and you play sister districts first 2 rounds, you could theoretically have 2 teams from the same district meet for the State Championship (Which if they are the 2 best teams, should be what happens IMO).
