NCAA Tournament 2016: Power Ranking the Entire Field of 68

The NCAA tournament field has been set, and we've ranked all 68 teams from bottom to top.

Whether your favorite team is a blue blood fighting for a national championship or a Cinderella just hoping to find that glass slipper, this is the time of year when thrillers, upsets and madness reign. We’re here to make a little sense of it all by providing an up-to-date ranking of every team in the NCAA tournament.

There were three big questions to answer during this ranking process:

  • How has the team done this season against other quality opponents?
  • Is it a well-rounded team or one that simply has peak performances against the right opponents?
  • Does the team have a player (or multiple players) who will strike fear into the heart of any opponent it faces?

The better the team scored in those three categories, the higher it ranked on our list and the better it should do in the tournament.

But who will ultimately cut down the nets in Houston in three weeks? We'll find out soon enough, beginning on Tuesday with Wichita State vs. Vanderbilt and Fairleigh Dickinson vs. Florida Gulf Coast playing in the First Four games.
