Marquette Tied for 12th With 4 Q1 Wins

Status of 4 Q1 Wins. Marquette’s four Q1 wins (71-60 vs. #13 Villanova, 101-79 neutral court vs. #38 USC, 84-80 at #49 Georgetown and at #63 Xavier) look relatively safe with Xavier. With victory margins up to 10 points factoring into the Net Ratings, USC’s 21-point loss at home to Colorado dropping them to 17-5 will make them a closer call, but Xavier’s win at Villanova Saturday will make them a safe Q1 moving up from #63 and needing only to stay in the top 75 as a road win for MU.
Two Q2 Wins that Could Become Q1. Those wins could grow to six if Purdue moves up 7 spots to #30 (MU won 65-55 at home) and K-State moves up 6 spots to #75 (road win 73-65). Purdue’s road win at Northwestern could help slightly, but K-State’s loss at West Virginia was a missed chance for MU to potentially become a 5th Q1 win overnight.

Future Q1 Chances. Based on current Net rankings MU has six more chances for Q1 wins; vs. #8 Butler, at #13 Villanova, vs. #14 Seton Hall, #25 vs. Creighton, at #59 DePaul and at #73 St. John’s with at #78 Providence just three spots from being a Quad 1 game.

For those who do not know, a Q1 win includes a win over at top 30 team at home, a top 50 on a neutral court, or a top 75 on the road. This is based on their current ratings, not the ratings at the time the game was won.

The Net Ratings listed above did not include Saturday’s games. The table below reorders the top 100 teams in the Basketball Net ratings in order of which team has the most Q1 wins (the 12th through 20th best all have 4 Q1 wins like Marquette), with the tie-breaker being the number of Q2 wins, and then the actual Net Ranking being the final tie-breaker.
