The NCAA is using a new metric this year to quantify and measure college basketball teams strength throughout the season. The RPI is out the door, and the new NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool) Rankings will be utilized.

This new way of ranking teams takes into account strength of schedule, quality of wins and losses, and a grouping of the four-quadrant wins that have been all the rage the last few years.

To that end, the first ever NET Rankings were released Monday and Ohio State is the answer to a trivia question you may never stumble upon, but nonetheless, the program will forever be known as the first ever No. 1 ranked team in this new sorting tool.

Yes, the result is a bit shocking and surprising, but clearly the Buckeyes have been given credit for winning on the road against Cincinnati and Creighton while remaining undefeated.

It’s been a good start to the season, but I don’t know if I’m quite ready to buy into Ohio State as the best basketball team in all of the NCAA.
