Home Cookin': Men are winning 82.4% of home games and women have a 70.6% home court mark so far in 2004-05

If non-Division I games are included, the percentages climb even higher


It is no secret that playing at home is good for the home team's winning percentage, and the 2004-05 season is shaping up to be no different. Through Tuesday's games, the men are 191-41 at home, good for a winning percentage of 82.4%. If the men's 83-1 record vs. non-Division I opponents is included in the data, the record balloons to 86.7%. The women have a 181-79 (70.6%) home record through Tuesday's games, and that goes to 72.4% if non-Division I games are included.

History shows that home court winning percentages for the men are very predictable from one year to the next. The men win about 73% to 74% of their non-conference home court games against Division I opponents, about 62% to 63% of their conference home court games, and 66% to 67% of all home court games, year in and year out. The last figure is based on over 25 years of data. Don't expect the 82.4% figure to hold up for any length of time, but it will not drop by much when the conference season rolls around. Division I teams regularly win about 90% of their games against non-Division I opposition, with almost all games at the home of the Division I team, so data including games against non-Division I opponents are misleading.


While we do not have as much data for the women as the men, the historical data are still reliable. The women win just a hair under 60% of their conference home court games, about 66% of their non-conference home court games, and 62% of all home court games against Division I opponents. They have won, on average, 79% of their games against non-Division I opposition over the past 8 years, but that has varied from 71% in 1999 to 87% in 2003. For Tuesday's games, the women were 23-25 for their non-conference home court record, quite different from their current 70% mark.


While the historical data suggests that we will see downward shifts in the non-conference home court winning percentages, one fact is certain to remain unchanged: Home is where the wins are. - RPIratings.com [/home]


We are sitting with a 2-1 record with all three games on the road and 6 more games atleast away from the RACC. The LIU game will be considerede a home game but it is actually at a neutral site - St Rose.


If you take the info from the above article you can understand that the Danes have some bumps in the road facing them as the Home Teams are winning at above 80% in DI.
