Power Rating Team Comments
1 2 up 1 27-4
(17-14-0)
-18.25 Duke
It's not just that Ryan Kelly is Duke's most versatile player. The confidence this team has now that he's back is palpable.
2 1 down 1 26-5
(16-13-0)
-18.2 Indiana
This team has only two seniors on the roster. Will the entire group play with the desperation that Watford and Hulls will have this March?
3 4 up 1 26-5
(17-14-0)
-18 Louisville
I did not trust or believe the hype with this team back in November. Now Louisville is one of the few teams I do somewhat trust or believe in.
4 3 down 1 30-2
(16-12-2)
-17.95 Gonzaga
The Bulldog guards are disgustingly mediocre. If Gonzaga makes any money from the NCAA Tournament they should invest in a weight room.
5 8 up 3 24-5
(15-10-0)
-17.35 Georgetown
Bettors beware: This team is No. 297 in the country in regards to experience. I smell an opening weekend flameout coming.
6 5 down 1 24-6
(15-12-0)
-16.8 Florida
I'm still higher on this group than most. Kenny Boynton must find his stroke. He's just 17-for-50 from the field over his last five games and 7-for-23 from deep. Florida can't win unless he gets hot.
7 7 same 24-7
(12-14-2)
-16.65 Michigan St
Only beating Northwestern by 10 is kind of embarrassing.
8 9 up 1 24-6
(17-9-1)
-16.1 Miami-Florida
In a quirk, the 'Canes are 4-0 the last four times Durand Scott has scored less than 10 points and 0-3 the last three times he has notched double-digits.
9 10 up 1 26-5
(16-14-0)
-16 Kansas
Ben McLemore sure looks the part. But there aren't too many games where I have watched him and said, "Yeah, that's the best player on the floor."
10 11 up 1 23-7
(15-12-2)
-15.95 Oklahoma St.
Baylor, the Cowboys' Big 12 tournament opening opponent, beat Oklahoma State at home and lost in overtime in the two regular season meetings this year.
11 12 up 1 25-6
(13-13-1)
-15.9 Kansas St.
Bruce Weber is just itching to mismanage the last two minutes of some big-time tournament games. He will get his wish and it will be spectacular!
12 14 up 2 23-7
(13-13-0)
-15.55 Marquette
Statistics lie: According to Ken Pomeroy, this is the 16th most efficient offense in the country. Yeah, no.
13 15 up 2 23-7
(16-11-1)
-15.5 Ohio St.
I can feel people getting sucked into Thad's genius and the innocence of Aaron Craft's rosy little cheeks. But I still don't trust this Buckeyes squad for a second.
14 6 down 8 25-6
(13-15-1)
-15.45 Michigan
The dirty little secret about the Wolverines is that outside of a couple one-bucket wins at home against Ohio State (76-74, OT) and Michigan State (58-57) these guys haven't beaten anyone since Thanksgiving.
15 16 up 1 24-7
(12-12-0)
-15.1 Pittsburgh
Like Syracuse, we will see how emotional the Panthers play at Madison Square Garden during their final Big East tournament ever.
16 13 down 3 23-8
(15-12-0)
-14.8 Syracuse
The Orange are getting horrific guard play right now. MC-W can't handle the slightest bit of pressure and Brandon Triche is assuming the fetal position as he's done for years.
17 19 up 2 24-6
(18-10-0)
-14.75 Saint Louis
This team is an absolute buzz saw right now.
18 17 down 1 24-6
(13-15-0)
-14.7 Arizona
The Wildcats would love a third crack at UCLA in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals.
19 18 down 1 26-5
(16-12-2)
-14.15 New Mexico
Let's ease up on this team getting a No. 1 seed. I don't know that they are even going to win the Mountain West tournament and their best nonconference win was at Cincinnati, by one.
20 21 up 1 24-7
(9-15-0)
-13.1 VCU
This is still the team I would least like to see if I were a shaky at-large team from a BCS conference.
21 24 up 3 23-8
(13-17-0)
-12.25 UCLA
This is another team people need to slow the hype with. They just lost to Washington State for crying out loud.
22 25 up 3 21-10
(14-12-0)
-11.85 Iowa St.
The Cyclones are loaded with talent and experience, but can they make shots outside of Ames?
23 30 up 7 27-7
(18-13-1)
-11.65 Creighton
That ugly 2-4 stretch back in February seems like a distant memory. This team still has a pretty low ceiling though.
24 26 up 2 23-8
(11-19-0)
-11.45 UNLV
By mailing it in and losing to Fresno State last Saturday, UNLV can avoid New Mexico until the MWC championship game.
25 20 down 5 20-10
(15-11-0)
-11.25 Connecticut
Assuming the Huskies bring everyone of importance back, this has the look of a potential top-5 team next November.
