Kenpom rankings out for MBB


MWC:

33 SDSU
49 Nevada
72 CSU
80 Boise
95 Utah St
130 UNLV
131 Fresno
183 WYO
287 UNM
301 AFA
335 SJSU

Other notables:

1 Gonzaga
35 UCB

Comments:

- CSU at 72 is shocking. I think they are definitely a top 50 team and I have a hard time understanding why Nevada is ranked so much higher than CSU. SDSU finished 2021 at 30, so their 33 ranking isn't as surprising due to how Kenpom works, but Nevada finished the 2021 season at 91, yet jump to 49 in the pre-season rankings. CSU finished 2021 at 76 and only jumped 4 spots to 72 even though we are returning our entire team. For some reason Kenpom loves Nevada but is not high on CSU. Perhaps they know something I don't.

- UCB at 35 is also a head scratcher.

- Overall, Kenpom likes the MWC. The conference has 5 teams in the top 100 and 7 teams in the top 135. That is a good sign for the strength of the conference. If we can maintain 7 teams in the top 135 that provides a lot of Quad 2 opportunities.

- Unfortunately, UNM, AFA, and SJSU will still drag the conference down. Hopefully Miles can get something special going for the Spartans. It would help the conference a lot if they became a top 135 team. That rebuild will likely take 2-3 years though before we see big improvement.

- It's really important for the top 7 teams to do well in the OOC schedule. WYO also has a shot to move into the top 135 if they can win early.
