TP: "If you look at it from a committee perspective, you had five committee members – and sometimes four [under committee rules, Loyola coach Charley Toomey was not allowed to be in the room when discussing the Greyhounds] – seeing all of those primary criteria that ended up being circular at some point. You had common opponents, but you could never make sense out of it, and even the head-to-heads didn't show a clear, concise rationale for this is why this team is above others. As we continued to look through the criteria, the committee has remained consistent that results against [teams with a Rating Percentage Index of] 1-to-5, 6-to-10 and 11-to-15 and looking at the full scope of work, the entire season [were significant]. Looking at those games, the 1-to-5, 6-to-10 and 11-to-15, who had success there and who had results there, the players played those games and had results in those categories. That ultimately made for hard decisions that differentiated a team here and a team there."
