Here are the rankings of the Top 50 teams (and B1G teams) based solely on NCAA tournament appearances and wins over the last 10 tournaments (2020 is eliminated because of no tourney). No other factors (conf reg season or tourney titles, individual coach or player award, etc.) are factored in.
Dating back to the 2013 tourney, here's the scoring metric used:
1 pt - making tourney (1/2 pt for making the play-in game but losing in Dayton)
1 pt - winning round of 64 game
2 pts - winning round of 32 game (making S16)
2 pts - winning S16 game (making E8)
3 pts - winning E8 game (making F4)
5 pts - winning F4 game (making title game)
10 pts - winning championship
Based on that metric, Connecticut gets 24 pts for winning this year's title, SD St. gets 14 for making the title game, Miami & FAU get 9 for making F4, etc. Obviously you can quibble w/ the pts awarded, but this gives a fairly accurate measure of performance over a 10 year window, and rewards longer runs because those are remembered longer than teams that consistently make the tourney and lose early.
Here's how those numbers shake out after this year's tourney, for tournaments played from 2013 - 2023
(note: tie-breakers are determined by who had the longest run in that window, or who made it that far more often. So while Louisville & Wisconsin both had 37 pts, Louisville holds the tie-break because they won a title while Wisconsin's longest run was a loss in the title game - NCAA penalties notwithstanding. K-St, Fla St & Ohio St all have 16 pts and each made it to the E8 during this window, but KSU made it twice while FSU & OSU only did once - so they win that tie-break. FSU made 3 S16's while OSU only made 1, so FSU wins the next level tie-break over OSU).
