Perhaps, but there have been some good NAIA teams that have beaten nationally-ranked D1 teams.

For example, Chaminade (then an NAIA team) beat a #1 ranked D1 team in 1982.

"Chaminade followed up the win over the Cavaliers by beating Louisville in both 1983 and 1984, by scores of 83–72 and 67–65, showing that the Virginia game was not a one-game fluke for Chaminade. The second Louisville win was against a Cardinals team ranked 12th in a national poll. Three days after that game, the Silverswords defeated SMU, the third-ranked team in the country, on a buzzer-beating shot."

Similarly, there have been many good D2 teams that have beaten a D1 teams.

Some examples of D2 teams beating D1 teams:

Syracuse lost to D2 Le Moyne in 2009. Syracuse went 30-5 and got to the sweet sixteen that year.

Augustana (SD) over Iowa

St. Thomas Aquinas College over St. Johns

Freed-Hardeman over Murray State

LSU-Alexandria defeated Southeastern (LA)

Cal State Monterey Bay over Utah State

There are 347 D-1 programs...no reason to ever schedule D-2 let alone NAIA in a game that counts. NAIA are mostly made up of kids who want to pay their own way to play a sport while attending a college that might be smaller than the high school they attended.

I vote for SMU’s Kendric Davis as the AAC’s best player.
