NT is defending champion and should be rated higher than this.

UAB played probably as easy an oc schedule as possible and managed a loss to a mediocre Chattanooga team.  Their conference record of 3-1 is the same as NT.    They should not be rated as high as NT, much less 31 spots better.   Apparently, these ranking put a high priority on wins versus the quality of the competition.

They've had games (they're toughest games, FYI) canceled or postponed. Those are far from guaranteed wins. At best they might be 2-1 and at worst they might be 1-2 or even 0-3 in the three games they haven't played.

I take this stuff with a grain of salt. They have our women ranked 125 and UAB ranked 114 after we swept UAB on their home court. Who makes these rankings? They obviously don't know what they are doing. Before anyone says that UAB wasn't at full strength, which I don't know, neither were we.

Who they had scheduled and not played is not pertinent. 

Based on the games played, I don't see why they are rating above NT.   Being 30 teams better is ridiculous.

Yep UAB is grossly overrated. They split their series to Charlotte who hung 37 the first game and lost to a D2 the week before.

To add to this, ESPN has UAB as the only Conference USA team making the tournament in their latest bracketology. They're in for a rude awakening once UAB plays competition actually worth a damn.
