Pick of the Day

Vanderbilt

The Commodores probably blew their chance at making it to March Madness when they lost 7 straight games in January, but they have been improving and would like to knock off Mississippi State, one of the teams that beat them earlier and shouldn't have, so tonight they will get their revenge.

Buffalo

College Basketball Rankings - 2 Mar

The two teams I named the most overrated in last week's rankings column were upset this week, with Northern Iowa losing by 14 at Wichita State and San Diego State losing by 10 to Boise State. The regular season has ended for about half of the teams, and will end Sunday for the rest. Here are this week's full rankings, with bold teams projected as conference champs, italicized teams projected to earn at-large berths, and underlined teams changing their in/out status this week. MOV stands for Margin of Victory.

Villanova moved up to #6 this week after stumbles from Gonzaga and Utah opened up space for the Wildcats, but they definitely have earned this jump. They have won 12 games against probably tournament teams, with only losses on the season, both against teams that will probably be in as well, and have won their last 10, with no losses for 6 weeks. They look like a solid #2 seed with a shot at earning a #1.

Baylor jumped up 4 spots this week after defeating 2 other ranked opponents convincingly, making up for the 2 similar losses they suffered 3 weeks before. The Bears' worst loss was at Kansas State, which isn't too bad, and they beat both Iowa State and West Virginia twice each, while also beating Texas and Oklahoma once each. They now have a very strong argument for a top 4 seed.
