Well Gonzaga really put that one away in the 2nd half.

They're still highly suspect to me. Struggling in a lot of these conference games to really bad teams. Pulling for BYU on Saturday.

You aren’t going to dominate every single game and they still won by 17 against a team that likely wins 20+ games.

Fair to be suspect of any of these “top teams” though.

Yeah, I mean MD almost lost to Nebraska, and the Northwestern game was really close at times. Both at home. So it is what it is. I just can't stand that Gonzaga gets to play no one every year on their way to 2 or 3 losses and get a top seed. Shouldn't happen.

They do usually play a tough OOC schedule and they hold up very well to that.

I get your point. Overall, their resume doesn’t touch most of the top 10 teams.

Doesn’t mean the eye test isn’t there though.

Really not impressed with Kansas or Baylor. But they are definitely two of the best teams. Strange year for sure. Obviously a nice win for Kansas.

Despite 38 points from Markus Howard, Marquette gets ran by Providence (final score not indicative of the way that game went).

Providence should be a tournament team. They've righted the ship since their awful OOC performance. A dangerous team.

Hell of an ending to Kansas Baylor.  Have to think they both probably get 1 seeds if they win out (aside from playing each other in the Big 12 title game).

 

For the Terps to entertain a 1 seed we are gonna need Zags or SDSU to lose.  Dayton, I think, wouldn't get a 1 over us (assuming we win the Big 10)

What does the ACC and WCC have in-common?

 

3 teams each in the KenPom Top 40.

KenPom needs to go back to the drawing board then.
