TOURNAMENT POLL METHODOLOGY: THIS IS A TOURNAMENT POWER INDEX RANKING; THE POLL IS NOT BASED ON A TEAM’S DUAL STRENGTH. TPI POINT TOTALS ARE BROKEN DOWN BY INDIVIDUAL RANKINGS DIRECTLY CORRELATED TO PLACEMENT POINTS AT THE NCWW CHAMPIONSHIPS: 1ST=16PTS, 2ND=12PTS, 3RD=10PTS, 4TH=9PTS, 5TH=7PTS, 6TH=6PTS, 7TH=4PTS, 8TH=3PTS, 9TH=2PTS, 10TH=1PT. THE TPI POINT TOTALS WILL BE LOWER THAN THE FINAL ACTUAL NCWW TOURNAMENT POINTS BECAUSE IT DOES NOT INCLUDE BONUS POINTS OR ADVANCEMENT POINTS.
