This list includes each team’s average points margin each game and movement from last week’s rankings.

Efficiency is calculated by subtracting points allowed from points scored and dividing it by 16 games to get the average points margin for each team throughout the season.

NOTE: These efficiency numbers are rounded to the hundredths place. In the case of a tie (to the ten thousandths place), the team with the higher winning percentage gets the tiebreaker.
