Week 9 Mid Major 15

Posted: January 4, 2017 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 have held the top 2 spots in this ranking every week of its existence and I really don’t believe things will ever change that. Former #3 Monmouth fell all the way out of the top 15 after back to back losses to Rider and Saint Peter’s. Dayton takes over the third spot followed by UT Arlington and Wichita State, all of which have been mainstays in the Mid Major 15. Rhode Island takes over the six spot after a couple of strong perfromances.New entrants to the top 25 are Illinois State, Nevada, Middle Tennessee and New Mexico State.
