So get those brackets filled out and let’s enjoy the best that NCAA Basketball has to offer in the next couple of weks.

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.
