NC State Atletic Director Debbie Yow said she was "disappointed" that "Wolfpack's total work was not rewarded" with a seat in the NCAA tournament, despite her high ranking computer rankings used by the assessment of the teams.
Of all the teams that missed the NCAA tournament field, the NC state had the highest net rating of 33. NCAA introduced NET ranking this season to replace RPI as a more analytical system that includes factors such as game results, the graphics, the location of the game, the margin and the net efficiency at both ends of the court.
However, the NC State – as well as the 35-year-old ACC Clemson team – was dropped, although it had a superior NET ranking of the top four of the largest team to play at First Four in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday and Wednesday . Belmont's German ranking was 47, 56 from Temple, Arizona State 63 and St. Louis. John's 73.

"State NC is ranked 33rd in the network, 32 in KenPom, 26 in BPI and 24 in Sagarin," Yow wrote Sunday, "Our power of charting is 179 and only Kevin's ranking
"We finished 8-9 against the quadruple 1 and 2 programs [in NET rankings] as five of those games outside our home arena while playing 14 matches against top 50 ATG charts and had only two losses outside of Top 22 in NET. This included a victory against SEC Champions, Auburn University and five matches against the first field seeds.
Based on the indicators [cited] above that the NCAA indicated they would use to evaluate the team's work, we are disappointed at our athletes, coaches and fans that our common work has not been rewarded with a selection for the NCAA tournament. "
NC State and Clemson were also not included in the four teams, the committee designated as the first four. They went to UNC Greensboro (NET 60), Alabama (59), TCU (52) and Indiana (54), who also received the largest seeds in NIT, while NC State and Clemson were 2 seeds. Belmondo's chief coach Rick Bird struggles to keep his tears when he describes how proud he is from his NCAA tournament team.
Selection Board Chairman Bernard Murray told ESPN that a special NET ranking was not meant to be a determining factor in the committee's choice.
"So NET is just a sorting tool, it's one of the many tools we've got, we're obviously watching a lot of games, and it goes into the discussion too," said Muir, "We were happy with how the network was running , but we do not just go down the list one at a time … We really try to appreciate the full amount of work the committee is talking about and at the same time it decides who is the best team that belongs to the 36- the largest. "
However, after the election of CBS, Muir said the commission had studied how well the teams were and he noted that a team such as Belmont who went 2-2 against the Quadrant 1 teams was viewed more favorably than a team like NC State, which is 3-9 against Quadrant 1 opponents , and therefore did not use more Quadrant 1 wins.
Clemson was only 1-10 against Quadrant 1 teams, while Texas, with a NET ranking of 38, went 5-10 and also settled for NIT. St Johns, despite a much lower rating than 73, went with 5-7 against the Quadrant 1 teams, the most wins from the last four and the first four teams other than Indiana who went 6-9 against Quadrant 1. St. . John also went with 5-3 against Quadrant 2, while Indiana was only 2-6.

This methodology could also deny Alabama, which was only 3-10 against the opponents of Quadrant 1, though coach Avery Johnson admitted that his team was not worth the place.
Nobody else is to blame, Johnson said. "We play at NIT because we were not good enough during the regular season and were not consistent enough."
The NCAA said UNC Greensboro was in the 68th field, while Oregon won the Pac-12 tournament on Saturday night to win an automatic bid. But UNCG coach Wes Miller relaxed by finding out how close he was to the Spartans to be the first Southern Conference Team to ever win a big deal
"This is an emotional pair of hours," Miller said. "We obviously felt that we deserved to be in the tournament We felt good enough To understand that you did not come in, it was heartbreaking and you knew you were in one place, maybe one day," It will be something that makes him feel a little better, but right now it makes him feel a little worse. "
