College Basketball Rankings (3/12/2017)

Last Updated: 3/27/2017 12:13 PM ET

To build the college basketball Power Rankings below, we "played" every team against every other team 50,000 times each and ranked by overall winning percentage of those games. These Power Rankings are as of (3/12/2017) rosters and projected depth charts.

In addition to the college basketball Power Rankings, we have also included each team's Offensive and Defensive efficiency rankings relative to the league based on our strength-of-schedule-adjusted statistics and current rosters.
