Posted: December 21, 2016 in NCAA

The Mid Major 15 is a ranking of the top 15 mid-major teams in the country. Conferences excluded from these rankings are the power-7: ACC, American, Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, Pac-12 and SEC. The teams that appear on this list are likely good names to know when searching for Cinderella come March. Although, St. Mary’s and Gonzaga will likely be top seeds in March.

The WCC powers held the top 2 spots and have been the only constant in the rankings thus far. Middle Tennessee, Monmouth and UNC Wilmington round out the rest of the top 5. Loyola Chicago enters the ranking all the way up at #6 despite losing to Toledo yesterday, their performance in the games prior had been spectacular. New Mexico State joins Loyola as the only new teams in the ranking as Oakland and San Diego State dropped out of the top 15.
