As of Wednesday afternoon, all 10 teams in the Big 12 Conference are in the top 65 of the NET rankings. The conference ranks first in the country in the NET, with an average of 32.40 and seven projected NCAA Tournament teams.

The NET rankings are used to determine the quality of teams by wins, losses, margin of game and site of game played. The NCAA Tournament committee has used the NET rankings to determine March Madness entrees and seedings.

Kansas State was the only Big 12 school outside of the top 65 as of last week. Over the last four days, Kansas State has went out and defeated then-No. 19 Texas Tech and No. 23 Texas. Kansas State has moved up to No. 65 in the NET rankings, after being at 76. Of course, the Big 12 is legitimately full of 10 teams that can compete with anybody in the country.
