NCAA Rankings – “Week 15”

February 13, 2012 1 comment

Wow, what a week of basketball. Rivalry Week definitely lived up to the hype once again. The best nightwas Wednesday night where Syracuse took on and beat Georgetown in a highly defensive game. Then in the late game that night, probably the best rivalry in sports Duke vs North Carolina and of course they certainly didn’t disappoint. A close first half led into a 2nd half where North Carolina took a big lead. It looked like the game was over until Duke made the comeback. Then all of a sudden while being down by 1 Austin Rivers got the ball in his hands and the rest is history, a 3 at the buzzer and Duke wins. Another great chapter written in this rivalry, this win propelled the Blue Devils back into the Top 5 this week. Kentucky is still the number 1 team in the country. This weeks full rankings down below.

Not much has changed in this weeks rankings as Kentucky remain number 1 and deservedly so. This weeks biggest match up will be on Saturday afternoon when number 2 Ohio St goes to take on number 13 Kansas. Here’s how the rest of the Top 25 shapes up.

November 28, 2011 Leave a comment

After an action packed tournament filled holiday weekend, we have a new team atop of the NCAA Rankings this week. The Kentucky Wildcats were unanimously voted as the country’s top team as North Carolina was defeated by UNLV in the Las Vegas Invitational championship game.  Previous week 4th ranked UCONN lost to Central Florida in the semi-final game of the Atlantis tournament in Nassau Bahamas, dropping them 6 spots to 10th. Upcoming this week is some huge matchups, with the ACC vs Big Ten Challenge we’ll see Duke up against Ohio St and UNC vs Wisconsin. This all leading up to an early season showdown between now #1 Kentucky vs #4 UNC on Saturday afternoon. Full Top 25 rankings down below.
