College Basketball NET Rankings: Five Lessons from the Debut List

The NCAA released its NET rankings Monday for the first time this season, with a household name at the top of the men’s list. Houston, which ranks #1 in both the AP and Coach Polls, leads the first NET release from an 8-0 start. Because the NET is an analytically based ranking that doesn’t include pre-season predictions like KenPom, there are usually some early outliers. The most notable this year is State of Sam Houston, which has ridden victories over Oklahoma and Utah at No. 7 on the NET (compared to its No. 91 rank in KenPom). The ranking list will now be updated daily until selection Sunday.
