Postseason Rankings

by: Zachery Bonzheim

 

All of the tournaments are done and over with. North Carolina has been crowned the king of the NCAA, but there was more than one team that ended their year with a win. In addition to the NCAA Tournament, the NIT, CBI, and CIT took place, giving over hundred teams a chance to win some sort of title. How do all of these teams rack up? This article intends to rank every NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball team that participated in postseason play. Teams like Ohio State, that declined their postseason bid will not be a part of the ranking regardless if they are more qualified than some of the lesser teams. Also, no team from a lesser round or a lesser tournament will be ranked above a team that either made it further or in a better tournament. For instance, the worst overall team in the NCAA tournament will be ranked ahead of the winner of the NIT, regardless if the NIT champion may have beaten the 16 seed in a head to head contest.

The tournaments go in order from NCAA Tournament, NIT, CBI, and CIT.
