2012 Pareto Dominetrics Final Rankings

Recall that there are four dimensions of performance:  (1) opponents' winning %, (2) own non-home winning %, (3) opponents' opponents' winning %, and (4) own home winning %.  Team A Pareto-dominates Team B if Team A exceeds Team B in at least one of these categories and Team A is not exceeded by Team B in any of these categories.  Given this criterion for Pareto-domination, Team A's Pareto Dominetric equals the quantity of teams that Team A Pareto-dominates minus the quantity of teams that Pareto-dominate Team A.  The following rankings are based on games played through the end of the day on Sunday, March 11, 2012.  Data sources:  ncaa.com and warrennolan.com.
