CBR is a modified RPI statistic that factors in conference RPI, conference record, and other factors. The CBR is more accurate than the RPI in predicting postseason selection. In 2021, CBR correctly picked the top eight seeds and 14 of the 16 Regional hosts. Like the RPI, CBR becomes more accurate as the season progresses.

Additional notes: The weights for each component of CBR were trained using the NCAA Selection Committee's picks from the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
