SALYERSVILLE - Magoffin County finished ninth in the final 2019-20 15th Region Boys' Basketball RPI Rankings.

The Hornets concluded the 2019-20 season behind Betsy Layne, Pikeville, Phelps, Paintsville, Lawrence County, Johnson Central, Martin County and Shelby Valley in the 15th Region Boys' Basketball RPI Rankings. Magoffin County ended the campaign ahead of East Ridge, Belfry, Prestonsburg, Floyd Central, Pike County Central and Jenkins.

RPI stands for Ratings Percentage Index. It is a way to measure a team’s strength relative to other teams, based largely on the strength of their schedules. The RPI formula is used by both the NCAA and NAIA, along with many high school associations and among other organizations, as part of their postseason system. RPI is calculated from the team’s Winning Percentage (WP), the Opponent’s Winning Percentage (OWP) and the Opponents’ Opponents’ Winning Percentage (OOWP). 

Magoffin County exited the 2019-20 boys' high school basketball season at the .500 mark after compiling a 15-15 overall record. The Hornets lost to host Martin County in the 2019-20 58th District Boys' Basketball Tournament Semifinals. 

Four of five starters are due to return for Magoffin County in the 2020-21 boys' high school basketball season. 

Currently sidelined due to the coronavirus, the Magoffin County boys' basketball team will look to resume work in the offseason whenever possible. 

The final 2019-20 15th Region Boys' Basketball RPI Rankings follow.
