our NET appears to be the lowest of all the things out there. kenpom, barttorvik, rpi.

NET - 46
Kenpom - 37
Barttorvik - 33
RPI - 29


does that have to do with them capping wins at 10 points?

Houston has the best path a really good tourney resume with 3 road games against smu, Memphis & UConn

But they also have a tough road to win the league.

UC has a pretty favorable path to win the league. Would be nuts if we win the league and didnít get in still

Both teams would have to play pretty bad for that to happen

I think it's because Kenpom and Torvik put more weight on recent games. NET rankings have the same weight all season.

I don't think Kenpom lists exactly what his weights are, but in his 2016 update he says: "The weighting coefficients to handle recency and game importance have been changed."

Torvik: "There's a recency biasóall games in the last 40 days count 100%, then degrade 1% per day until they're 80 days old, after which all games count 60%"

We dropped 3 spots to 51.

Vermont (79) and Tulsa (82) both continue to make positive progress towards Q2. If Vermont wins @Stony Brook (159) on Thursday, that could give them the bump up the rankings needed to stay Q2 for the remainder of the season.

After a tough road game @Houston, Tulsa has 3 winnable home games in a row (SMU, Tulane, UCF). If they can also win one of their final 2 road games (@Temple and @Wichita), then I like their chances of jumping up to Q2.

8-5 against Q1/2, with 3 games left (for sure), and thats before potential Vermont/Tulsa movement to Q2.

The more I think of it, a 4-1 finish feels like we wouldn't even be on the bubble. 10-6 against Q1/2 with our SOS, 14-4 in the 7th best conference, I can't see that not being in the main field.
