    The Men’s NCAA Tournament is set, as the field of 68-schools was released on Selection Sunday. One strategy many bracket players look for is the efficiency ratings for each school’s offense and defense. We’ve compiled the list of schools with the best efficiency ratio ratings, combining both offense and defensive ratings.

    Schools with a high offensive rating have higher numbers, whereas schools with a high defensive rating have lower numbers. Teams with the best efficiency ratios have lower overall ratings. Check out which schools have the best efficiency ratios entering March Madness.

    These schools could go far in the tournament or simply pull off a First Round upset. Either way, these are schools to circle as the nation’s best teams on both sides of the court! Also be sure to check out plenty bracket games at RYP, from the Jack Link’s Bracket Challenge to creating your own bracket pool!
