This week only 6 AP Top 25 teams suffered losses, much less than what we’ve been used to this year. But still, a national powerhouse and tournament favorite lost another game. For the most part, teams handled their business, and Kansas proved once again they are not to be overlooked.

This season has already seen more Top 10 teams lose than any season before and this week, the Madness continued. Only three Top 10 teams didn’t lose week and almost two-thirds of all the ranked teams saw opposing teams celebrating as the buzzer rang.

This week causes for some major shakeups in the rankings as Gonzaga jumps into the top five and teams like Purdue, Ohio State, Clemson, and Tennessee fall, some even out of the rankings completely. This NCAA season continues to be unpredictable to the fullest meaning of the word.

The Madness has been going on all season and we’re still a few weeks away from March. The outcomes this season have been impossible to predict as a select few teams have distanced themselves from the rest of the field. This was another crazy week in the NCAA as 13 of the AP Top 25 suffered losses.

What’s new? This week 9 AP Top-10 teams faced losses in what was another surprising week in college basketball. 6 of the Power 16 teams from a week ago lost and the parity in the NCAA was just further reassured.

Duke lost to the worst team in a conference, Big 12 powerhouse Kansas lost, Arizona lost on a buzzer beater and Florida lost twice… again. College basketball has been hard to project this year and each week I see teams I believe in make me look stupid.

There was finally a somewhat calm week in the NCAA. I say somewhat even though four AP Top-10 teams lost, Ohio State lost on a half-court buzzer-beater, and UNC and West Virginia both lost twice. Not as many teams lost in general but the losses than happened were still big.

Virginia’s two big wins move them atop the rankings while North Carolina falls out completely. Some more mid-major teams find their way into the rankings as power conferences have proven the parity in college basketball this year.

Another crazy week in college basketball shakes up the rankings this week. Three top 10 teams suffered multiple losses, 13 AP Top-10 teams lost, and four teams from last weeks Power 16 fell out, including a Top 10 team.

In a season where top ranked teams have been losing at an unprecedented rate, this week was no different. A few non Power 5 teams climbed their way into the rankings as the madness continued in the major conferences.

It seems like every week we have pretty drastic changes amongst the top teams in the nation. Top ranked teams have been dropping like flies showing the parity in college basketball again this year. Amidst all the madness, Villanova finds a way to stay atop the rankings.

The Top-5 gets shaken up a bit after West Virginia and Michigan State suffered losses. Oklahoma got back on track with two big wins and North Carolina and Kentucky were able to crawl back into the Power 16.
