Always March Preseason Mid-Major Power Rankings

Note: The conferences not included in the mid-major top 25 are the American, ACC, Atlantic 10, Big 10, Big 12, Big East, Mountain West, Pac-12 and SEC. Basically, any conference that traditionally sends multiple teams to the NCAA Tournament are not considered mid-majors. The one exception is if a conference does usually send two teams to the NCAA Tournament, but it is the same two or three teams every year, that league is considered a mid-major. For example, the WCC typically sends two teams to the Tournament, but a team outside of Gonzaga, Saint Mary’s or BYU hasn’t earned a bid since 2008. Therefore, the league as a whole is considered a mid-major for the purpose of these rankings.
