Rewards standings before the tournament games and after them.

Commentary: Rewards matched both polls fairly well, with regards to which teams appeared in the "top four", and NIT Champion Providence came in at #11, where the UPI poll had them as the #13 team. (The AP poll only listed their top ten this year.) Three of those top four teams made the NCAA Final Four, and Loyola's win over Cincinnati in the NCAA Championship promoted them up to #1, above the Bearcats, in the final Rewards ranking, and Providence's 3 NIT wins moved them up to #6 as well. (NIT runner-up Canisius moved up from #33 to #28.)
