With less than two months left in the regular season, it’s time to start thinking about Kentucky’s NCAA Tournament resume.
Starting last year, the NCAA began publishing the “team sheets” the Selection Committee uses to pick and seed teams. Each team’s wins are sorted into four quadrants using their opponent’s NET rankings, which replaced the RPI this year:
- 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
Kentucky’s current NET ranking is No. 10. Here’s how their team sheet looks as of games through January 16:
Kentucky is only 2-3 in Quadrant 1 games so far, but has nine more left on the schedule, which is huge. It all starts Saturday vs. Auburn.
