I’ll just say here, in my post-Miami update, that what Tony Bennett says on a lot of things is right, and in particular, he’s right on March.

Just keep chasing quality basketball.

Virginias uber-impressive 60-38 win over Miami on Big Monday had a massive impact on the Cavaliers’ standing in the computers.

Metric Previous Rank Rank Today Change
SOR  32  27  +5
RPI  32  29  +3
KPI  34  30  +4
NET  42  32  +10
BPI  35  33  +2
KenPom  57  47  +10
Average  38.7  33  +5.7

Going into Monday’s game, Virginia was a borderline 9-10 NCAA Tournament seed.

Sitting here heading toward the mid-week, it’s looking like solid 8.
