Kentucky fell almost ten spots in the NET rankings following the loss at South Carolina. After beating Arkansas in Fayetteville, the Cats climbed back up to No. 27, only one spot lower than a week ago.
Baylor remains the No. 1 team in the NET rankings, followed by San Diego State, Gonzaga, Kansas, Dayton, Duke, Butler, Michigan State, West Virginia, and Louisville. After back-to-back losses to Alabama and Florida, Auburn fell all the way to No. 20. You can see the entire rankings here.
As we do every Monday, 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 vs. Georgia tomorrow night and a Quadrant 1 win at Texas Tech on Saturday.
