NCAA Power 16: Feb. 26th

Power 16
1. Connecticut
Handing Marquette their 1st home loss of the year is enough to reclaim the top spot.
2. Oklahoma
Giving them the benefit of the doubt since Blake totaled 11 minutes in two losses.
3. North Carolina
Looked dominant at times against MD but lacked the focus to close it out.
4. Pittsburgh
The curse of the No.1 strikes again – Fields is 6-24 from the field in his last three.
5. Memphis
Have won 18 in a row and look for #19 against a tough UAB team tonight.
6. Louisville
The Hoyas did not bring the must-win attitude that they needed against the Cards.
7. Duke
Beat a Maryland team that just beat UNC. Chain rule? Not quite.
8. Kansas
The defending champs go as Sherron Collins goes.
9. Missouri
Seven wins in a row leading up to a rematch with KU on 3/1.
10. Clemson
Lax perimeter D the reason they lost to the Hokies, giving up 11-9 from three.
11. Marquette
Losing to UCONN was tough to swallow, but losing James hurts a lot more.
12. Arizona St.
Winners of five in a row face off against the leaders of the Pac-10 tonight.
13. Purdue
They’ve won without Hummel, who’s totaled 16 points in his last three games.
14. Michigan St.
The stingy Spartan D has given up 60 or more only twice in their last eight.
15. Washington
2 headed PG tandem of Thomas and Dentmon have their eyes on Pac-Ten title.
16. Wake Forest
A win over NC St. puts them back on track.

Honorable Mentions

Villanova (23-5) A two-point win over DePaul might as well be a loss, right?

LSU (23-4) – Keep winning in a weak SEC.

Dayton (23-5) – Two losses in a row after making the Power 16.

Xavier (22-5) – Have lost three of their last five.

This Week’s Match-ups to Watch:

Saturday, 2/28: #12 Clemson @ #23 Florida St. – Both teams are looking to rebound from tough losses.

Sunday, 3/1:

#8 Marquette @ #6 Louisville – How will the Golden Eagles respond without James.

#11 Missouri @ #15 Kansas – GAME OF THE WEEK

#9 Michigan St. @ #20 Illinois – In January, the Spartans beat the Illini 63-57.

Wednesday, 3/4:

#8 Marquette @ #1 Pittsburgh – Can Dejuan Blair stay out of foul trouble?
