NCAA Power 16 Rankings

Mon, 01/29/2018 - 6:41pm

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.
