Mountain Lions Fifth in RMAC Snapshot Standings
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs will begin the conference basketball season in fifth for the latest RMAC "Snapshot" standings for the all-sport competition cup. The updated standings include new scoring for the men's and women's basketball and wrestling non-conference season.
UCCS stands with 534 points on unofficial scoring tabulated by the Mountain Lion Sports Information Office. UCCS is the top institution in the standings with open wild card spots in both the men's and women's scoring, and has already scored 50 more points through the partial standings for 2012-13 compared to the complete standings for 2011-12.
The Mountain Lions have only received wild card points in men's cross country, men's golf, women's soccer and women's cross country. The fewer wild card sports created a known weakness in the current snapshot standings, which will be balance out when the indoor track and field season begins.
The Sports Information Office used last year's scoring matrix to assign points. Fall sports used the final conference standings, while sports that are in season are scored as if the current standings were final. For men's and women's golf, the team standings at the official RMAC events were used the compile unofficial standings. For men's and women's swimming, the top 24 times in the performance lists were used to rank the teams.
The RMAC uses the finishes in the regular season standings or championship to assign points to each school on 10 performances between four core sports, three men's wild card sports and three women's wild card sports. In the core sports, each institution receives points for men's and women's basketball, volleyball, and either football or men's soccer (for schools with both, the highest point total is counted). The top three finishes for the men's and women's wild card sports include the best finishes for the institution in any other sport that the RMAC conducts a championship in.
Gray cells indicate that scoring is final. Bold indicates that the score was used in the total score. Numbers with strikes are used to indicate whether the men's soccer or football score was used in the respective category.
