  • Arrows indicate movement up or down the seed list (down to the spot on the seed list).
  • For at-large candidates only, the numbers in parentheses after the team’s name are as follows: NET, record vs. D1 opposition, record in Quad 1 and Quad 2 games, record in Quad 1 games only. NET data and Quad records reflect games played through Sunday, Feb. 23. Overall records reflect games played through Monday, Feb. 24.
