NCAA Power 16: Feb. 19th

Power 16
Record
Comment
1. North Carolina
24-2
Tyler Zeller’s return gives them yet another weapon for the tournament.
2. Pittsburgh
24-2
Ask Hasheem Thabeet if he would describe Dejuan Blair as an “undersized PF.”
3. Oklahoma
25-1
Taking full advantage of the lack of elite teams in the Big 12 this year.
4. Connecticut
24-2
The top center in a draft should NEVER get dominated by a guy nine inches shorter.
5. Louisville
20-5
Tough to beat when they score like they did against Providence.
6. Clemson
21-4
Few big men in the country play as hard on both ends as Trevor Booker.
7. Memphis
22-3
Will not see another quality team until the NCAA Tournament.
8. Duke
20-5
Lost two in a row…a game with St. John’s will make sure it doesn’t reach three.
9. Marquette
22-4
Got the two wins they needed before a hellish final 5-game stretch.
10. Missouri
22-4
DeMarre Carroll is the best player in the country that no one knows.
11. Arizona St.
20-5
Beat UCLA for the 2nd time this year before crushing USC.
12. Purdue
20-6
Jumps back into the Power 16 with a statement win over Izzo’s Spartans.
13. Michigan St.
20-5
Morgan’s first game back (14 minutes, 3 points) not the return MSU needed.
14. Dayton
23-3
March 5th – Xavier gets its rematch. Look for a Flyer letdown before that.
15. Wake Forest
20-4
On Sunday, Wake will have a chance to leapfrog Duke.
16. Kansas
21-5
Jayhawks, here’s your warning: Do NOT look past Nebraska with OK coming up.

Honorable Mentions

Villanova (20-5): It’s not really their fault they fell (although the 21-point loss to WVU didn’t help).

UCLA (19-6): A bad trip to the desert (losses to ASU and UA) knocks them out of the Power 16.

Washington (19-6): The best team in Pac-10 conference play at 10-3.

This Week’s Match-ups to Watch:

Thursday, 2/19: #22 Washington @ #20 UCLA – The Bruins try to avenge an 11-point loss to the Huskies back in January.

Sunday, 2/22: #8 Wake Forest @ #9 Duke – Could the Blue Devils possibly lose to another ACC power at Cameron Indoor?

Sunday, 2/22: #12 Villanova @ #24 Syracuse – A battle of two of the Big East’s best guards: Scottie Reynolds and Jonny Flynn.

Monday, 2/23: #15 Kansas @ #2 Oklahoma – Finally, some competition for Blake Griffin and the Sooners.

Wednesday, 2/25: #1 Connecticut @ #10 Marquette – Won’t be #1 come Monday, but the Huskies need to take care of business against a tough Marquette squad.
