The whole point of a NET rating is to measure things beyond wins and losses. The efficiency of a team, and the quality of play against quality of opponents. Throughout the first 3/4 of this season, Auburn’s NET rating was really good, while its actual record was lacking.That NET is supposed to be indicative of how good a team actually is, beyond what the wins say. That NET said Auburn was a Tournament team — and it was backed up by Kenpom, basically the original expert on predictive models based on efficiency. Now, the NET, and Kenpom have been proven correct. Finally, Auburn started winning games against great teams. It started winning on the road. It started showing why these metrics liked the Tigers.The Tigers have won four in a row, and six-of-seven games.

Danny Lawhon Des Moines Register Published 2:46 PM EST Feb 13, 2019 For a good six weeks, we've been using computer rankings and "evaluation tools" to guess how the NCAA Tournament bracket might unfold. The NCAA's selection committee last weekend finally tipped its hand a bit to help us see how they view the nation's premier teams. And what that look at Saturday's top 16 seeds showed was not promising news for something we've been following for a month: Iowa and Iowa State's roads to first- and second-round games in Des Moines are increasingly narrow. Pay attention, and we'll explain why. As part of its process of building the bracket, the NCAA aims to give these top 16 teams — or the top four seeds in each region — geographical precedence for where they'll play those first two games.
