NCAA Tournament Preview: Consensus Team Rankings
NCAA Tournament Preview: Consensus Team Rankings

We're typically pretty player focused here at RotoWire, and if you're looking for rankings for an individual player draft, you can view those here. But if you're filling out a bracket and just want to see how Team A vs. Team B stacks up in the metrics, here's the place to do so. We've compiled three predictive methods to choose from: KenPom, ESPN's Basketball Power Index (BPI) and the NCAA's NET rankings system. Plus, to see where the public is, we added an Odds ranking (as of the evening of March 18). The default sort here is by tournament seed, but feel free to pick your favorite metric, or sort by the "consensus" column, which is an average of all four.

Note: These are rankings within the 68 teams of the NCAA Tournament field, NOT the entire NCAA Division 1 pool of teams. So for example, Gardner-Webb has a NET ranking of 173, but they are listed with a ranking of 62 here, meaning they have the 62nd highest NET ranking in the tournament field.
