Updated NCAA Men's Basketball NET rankings

Heading into the final weekend of basketball action in the SEC, the league’s teams on the bubble are running out of time to impress the NCAA committee. Those that have yet to seal their fate as an NCAA tournament team will need to finish the season strong in the upcoming SEC Tournament.

So which teams should be the most concerned? The best way to determine that is the NET rankings, which are used by the committee.

If you aren’t familiar with the NET rankings, they were designed to be an improved version of the old RPI rankings.

The NET rankings consist of several factors: a team’s winning percentage, average opponent’s winning percentage, average opponent’s opponent’s winning percentage, game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses.

Here is where each SEC team currently ranks in the NET rankings

#7 Alabama

#12 Arkansas

#23 Tennessee

#27 Florida

#28 LSU

#39 Missouri

#57 Ole Miss

#67 Kentucky

#71 Auburn

#79 Mississippi State

#93 Georgia

#117 Vanderbilt

#123 South Carolina

#145 Texas A&M

  • As of this moment, I don’t think we have any teams on the bubble. The SEC has six teams solidly in and everyone else is out, unless they win the conference tournament. Ole Miss may be able to get in without winning it, but they will need some notable wins. The loser of the LSU-Missouri game could find themselves in a bit of danger with a loss in the first round of the conference tournament, but I think they should both get in.
