      The rankings are based off-of an algorithm that includes a variety of variables. The ranking of each team is based off-of their activity and their ability to place in the Final Four of each tournament they participate in. Teams are not awarded credit for just showing up to a tournament as every team does that. We award teams for 1 being good and 2 being the best. Each team in our top 25 has either won a major NIT or an Open tournament. In addition, they’ve all also placed in the final four as this is the only way to crack our top 25. If you have questions about the validity of any team being ranked please inquire and we can provide a comprehensive report of that teams success within a 12 month period.
