The NCAA men's basketball regional advisory committees released their third set of rankings, and as expected, the Atlantic Region was among those getting shuffled. Here's the full list: http://www.d3hoops.com/notables/2018/02/men-regional-rankings-third

How are Regional rankings determined?  Is it the same committee that votes Top 25?

Feel free to brush up here: http://www.d3hoops.com/interactive/faq/ncaatournament

Top 25 has nothing to do with this... as it doesn't for any NCAA tournament in any division.

Wartburg sneaks into the 8 slot for the regional ranks this week, which is big for Loras and NWU as it gives them a couple more results versus RRO. Especially since this is one of the two ranks that count for selection sunday in terms of results versus RRO.

Other places, Augsburg, who is ahead of Loras currently (and beat them H2H) also beat Wartburg so it is another result for them. If Wart loses in the semis, they could fall out and Bethel could sneak in if they have a solid MIAC tournament. This would give Augsburg 2 more results versus regionally ranked opponents.

Alot of scenarios and not a whole lot of hoops left. Will be clear on who will be in the NCAAs really soon!

Awesome night of IIAC hoops tonight. As a side note, does anybody know why the IIAC appears to be behind most other conferences around the country when it comes to releasing post season awards?

Might be waiting until after the conference tournament.  Believe this was the case last year as well.
