The NCAA’s NET rankings made its debut for the 2019-20 season Monday, with Maryland men’s basketball placing in the No. 11 spot.
The NET is an evaluation tool that was introduced last year, replacing the RPI as the primary sorting tool.
For the second-straight year, Ohio State was slotted as the No. 1 team. Along with Ohio State and Maryland, 10 Big Ten teams are within the top-50 of the NET — the most of any conference.
