UNO Mavericks basketball joined the Summit, a Division I conference in 2011. In that small window of time, there have been some interesting trends:
- From 2011/12 – 2013/14 both UNO and Nebraska improved each year, with Nebraska ranking 54th at the end of the 2013/14 season. They made the NCAA tournament that year.
- Creighton, in the years mentioned above, stayed in the Top 25, with a final ranking of 17 in 2013/14. All-American Forward Doug McDermott (currently playing for the Chicago Bulls) was a powerful offensive force in those years.
- All three teams had challenging 2014/15 seasons.
- Omaha Mavs have not eclipsed the Huskers or Bluejays in RPI any of these years
