first Record: 7-0 | Last week: Monday. Because of Duke’s loss first Ohio State Third, there is no argument. Purdue scored at least 80 points and performed better than 50% of the shots and 35% of the 3-pointers in each game. Matt Painter’s club defeated a knight State of Florida team 28 on Tuesday. Purdue has a #1 rated offense at KenPom, and Jaden Ivey is doing 43.3% of his shots outside the arc. Nothing but elite vibes right now with Boilers. 2 Record: 7-0 | Last week: day 4. Read the sign above: winning streaks usually mean a lot in these sections. Baylor’s is dominating, and if anything is still flying, if not within radar range, then only on its outskirts. Unbelievable. The Bears’ most recent action was their Battle 4 Atlantis championship over Thanksgiving weekend, the best upcoming win over Michigan State in the title game. The Bears’ next big game isn’t in 10 days: Villanova arrived in town on December 12. 3 Record: 7-1 | Last week: day 1. An encouraging sign for college basketball: Gonzaga-Duke, which begins around 10:40 p.m. ET on the Friday after Thanksgiving, is the highest-rated regular-season college basketball game on ESPN’s network as of March 2019. By Gonzaga The 84-81 loss in Las Vegas gave us the best game of this youth season. I won’t dock at GU too heavily because it takes a cooking pot in 40 minutes. Looks like Zags lost Duke a bit too. 4 Record: 6-0 | Last week: day 5. Wild cats really want to play but they will have to wait until Saturday (at Oregon State) because of their scheduled Thursday home game vs. Washington was postponed due to COVID issues with Huskies. On the ring, Tommy Lloyd had a beautiful share of the ball from his teammates. The Wildcats are assisting 73.8% of their shots, the best (comfortable) ratio in the sport. It resulted in a scoring margin of +33.8. . 5 Record: 7-0. | Last week: 8th. Unbeatable, but if you don’t USC fan or someone who dialed in the Pac-12, did you know? That’s why you drop by here every Thursday to find out. USC is easily eliminated Utah 93-73 late Wednesday. The Trojan is allowing 60.4 ppg. On Saturday Southern Cal will be playing Washington State, a team it has won 10 games in a row. But Wazzu could be a competitive team this season, so it could be a battle. 6 Record: 6-0 | Last week: 13th. The Razorbacks climb high and benefit for two reasons at the moment: 1) several other teams are already ahead of them if they haven’t lost in the past few days, and 2) Arkansas‘The possible schedule to this point has helped them avoid a scratch. Eric Musselman’s team played with enthusiasm but had a weakness that needed immediate attention. Hogs made only 28.8% of their 3-pointers. 7 Record: 6-1 | Last week: 12nd. Brad Davison took 27 points in Wednesday night’s win at Georgia Tech, while the team’s top scorer, Johnny Davis (19.3 ppg), had 15. Tech played well enough but still not enough. Signs like that show that the Badgers have a reliable team. There weren’t great expectations for Bucky going into this season, but I’ve had enough. This band will be a factor in the Big Ten. 8 Record: 6-0 | Last week: the 19th. The tigers who defeated Ohio no later than the 15th on Wednesday night, don’t play again until December 11th against Georgia Tech. If LSU win that game, it will be 9-0 for the first time since 1999-00, when it started 13-0. Remember, this team lost Adam Miller, Illinois Transfer of people is expected to play a major role. He tore his ACL, but LSU hasn’t been stymied by that yet. Will Wade be able to have a top team in the SEC again. 9 Record: 7-0 | Last week: N / CHEAP. It was a morale-building win for the Hawkeyes on Monday night at Virginia. Iowa had a 40-19 lead at one point, then relinquished the lead with 30 seconds remaining. Joe Toussaint hit a shot out of the glass with seconds left to beat Virginia at Virginia. We don’t see that often. Similar to Wisconsin, there aren’t many expectations outside of this show for what it’s going to do this season. Fran McCaffery’s men had other ideas. ten Record: 7-1. Last week: Friday. Despite Duke’s loss at Ohio State, the school’s 19-4 Big Ten/ACC Challenge record remains the best of any school in the event’s history. Duke is the No. 1 team under Mike Krzyzewski with a score of 219-36, and this week is the 145th time the school has ranked 1, the most in AP Top 25 history. The question is, will Duke find Get your way back there before the season ends? OSU is the highest ranked KenPom team that Duke will face the rest of the season. 11 Record: 8-0. Last week: 14. There are three 8-0 teams in college men’s basketball. The first is LSU, the second is these people, the third you will see in just a moment. The Rams have only had one season in the last 25 with an 8-0 starting record. It came in 2014-15, when the team started 14-0. CSU was down 27-6 after losing the Mountain West tournament that year and not receiving a major slot. If this team has six or fewer losses and doesn’t get an automatic bid in 2022, that would be a shock. It will be almost impossible if CSU can beat Saint Mary’s on Saturday. Great mid game. twelfth Record: 7-0. Last week: N / CHEAP. The Cyclones was featured in the first edition of this week’s Court Report, which also highlights undefeated Minnesota (Gophers just missed the chance to cut). If you told me a month ago that I would rate State of Iowa By the second iteration of Hey Nineteen, I told you it was time to quit drugs. What is this group up to? Coach TJ Otzelberger told me, “We’re not going out on the field trying to prepare our opponents as much as we’re trying to do what we do better than our four and get confirmed. It’s not a secret recipe.” 13 Record: 6-1. Last week: 16. The Cougars are the #4 team at KenPom (remember, a lot of pre-season bias is still announcing that ranking in a month’s time). The only scratch was a two-point loss in the Maui Invitational title game against Wisconsin, which can age. The Cougars placed first in defensive effectiveness (87.9) and have two gimme games coming up against Bryant and Alcorn State. 14 Record: 6-1 | Last week: Thursday. The Gators tumbled slightly, but an undeserved loss on the road against a snake Oklahoma the group has no reason to overreact. If anything, the win over Ohio State eight days ago looks even better. Mike White has five players averaging between 9.7 and 14.7 points. If UF could limit its revenue a bit, that would be the top 25 per week. 15 Record: 7-1 | Last week: 18. The game’s absence against Gonzaga on 23 November had no lasting impact. The Bruins won at UNLV to 22 points four days later, then casually care Colorado at home Wednesday night, 73-61. There’s an interesting stretch to come, as three of this team’s next four games will not be at home: in Washington on Sunday, then at Marquette December 11 and play against UNC in the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas on December 18. 16 Record: 7-1 | Last week: N / CHEAP. The brethren may be the most underrated convention group at the moment. While the lone defeat was total (58-40 against Virginia in Newark, New Jersey), PC has three wins against top 45 KenPom teams: Wisconsin on the road, Northwest on a Neutral and Texas Tech at home. If the brothers can run their home-based business on Saturday against the hateful URI, the team needs to rank in Monday’s AP poll. 17 Record: 8-0. Last week: N / CHEAP. Third team 8-0, as mentioned above. Todd Golden’s Dons have the best start to a season since 1976-77. Two wins came in Las Vegas first Towson and UAB. USF also defeated Davidson and Nevada. The player plays the role Julian Rishwain made 27 3s and made 18 of them. His 66.7% clip was #1 in 3-point accuracy in the college round. Dons has NCAA tourney potential, but there’s a lot more work to be done. 18 Record: 7-1 | Last week: N / CHEAP. Good start for Porter Moser at new school. The Sooners’ only loss was three points against one Wyoming team. The Sooners played in control and command Wednesday night and were rewarded with a 74-67 home win over Florida because of it. OU is taking 61% of his shots inside the 3-point line, a trait that has been identified during his time at Loyola Chicago. 19 Record: 7-1. Last week: day 9. Huskies dropped 10 places because they lost to Michigan State (in an ugly game) at Battle of Atlantis, then won the Round with the opposite VCU and extended Tuesday night to fall short of UMES before nine. Adama Sanogo (15.6 ppg, 6.3 rpg) was as good as promised in pre-season. UConn will stay at this party if it can win at West Virginia next Wednesday.
