Kentucky No. 26 in new NET Rankings; Updated Team Sheet

Slowly but surely, the Cats are climbing the NET. After wins over Georgia and Alabama, Kentucky is No. 26 in the latest NET rankings, up one spot from Wednesday morning and eleven spots from a week ago.

Baylor is the No. 1 team in the NET, followed by Butler, Duke, San Diego State, and Kansas. Auburn comes in at No. 6, while Michigan State fell from No. 8 to No. 12 after yesterday’s embarrassing 71-42 loss to Purdue. Louisville is No. 14 and Ohio State No. 16. Arkansas, Kentucky’s opponent this Saturday, is No. 24. After three losses in the past four games, Utah dropped to No. 60, moving the Cats’ loss to the Utes in Las Vegas to Quadrant 2. You can see the complete rankings here.

With the new rankings out, let’s take a look at Kentucky’s team sheet, which the Selection Committee starting using to pick and seed teams a few years back. Each team’s wins are sorted into four quadrants using their opponent’s NET rankings:

  • Quadrant 1: Home 1-30; Neutral 1-50; Away 1-75
  • Quadrant 2: Home 31-75; Neutral 51-100; Away 76-135
  • Quadrant 3: Home 76-160; Neutral 101-200; Away 136-240
  • Quadrant 4: Home 161-plus; Neutral 201-plus; Away 241-plus

Up for grabs this week: a Quadrant 2 win at South Carolina on Wednesday and a Quadrant 1 win at Arkansas on Saturday.

    I’ll be traveling up for Saturday’s game and I’m ecstatic as it’ll just be my third Kentucky game ever, but Arkansas has me nervous! Hoping for a W on my birthday!

      Happy Birthday. Hope you are able to celebrate it with a UK victory. I am nervous also. They are always tough to beat at home.
