This Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET on CBS, we’ll again have the once-a-season, mid-February reveal of the top 16 seeds in the NCAA Tournament if the tournament were to start exactly on Saturday.
The men’s basketball selection committee is convening in person this week and reviewing X-amount of schools in contention for the top four spots in each corner of the bracket. So we’ll have seeds 1-4 shared as if the season were to end in just a couple of days.
With that in mind, this week’s version of the Hey Nineteen will serve as a refresher by giving you some detail for each team’s NCAA Tournament certificates of legitimacy as of now. But as a reminder, today’s power rankings — and every version of the power rankings — doesn’t assemble teams in order of overall résumé per bracketology projections. We have an entire hub for that, and you can check the most recent publishings right here. Of course, you should do that only after you read through today’s rankings!
Hey Nineteen Power Rankings
Norlander’s Hey Nineteen is a weekly encapsulation of the 19 hottest and/or most successful teams in college basketball, combining team quality with win quality but also leaving no shame for recency bias and rewarding significant winning streaks.
