    How is a .611 winning percentage higher than .641 or .620? Am I missing something?

    A-ha. The excerpt here is missing the beginning of the sentence, "Among the groups that have more than one Division I basketball school..." The excerpt makes no sense without that.

    but BYUs .620 is still better than .611 and BYU universities on ly have one DI program. BYU Hawaii is DII

    It makes more sense when I read the actual article. The DN editor kind of butchered it.

    Do your homework.

    St. Johns winning percentage is 65.83% (after the two victories this week)
    Notre Dame is 64.73%
    Villanova is 64.06%
    BYU is 62%
    That puts BYU at fourth. wouldn't you agree that it is stupid to combine two universities because they are the same order? They aren't the same school!

    @Tilka:

    Actually, the article is comparing various religions' schools' records on the court. So, if a religion sponsors more than one Div I basketball team they would have to combine records, because that would reflect on the religion, not the team.

    Oh, and Notre Dame only has a 56.9% winning percentage, worse than BYU's 62%
