College Basketball Power Rankings: Auburn, Gonzaga, Arizona Take Top Three With Big Weekend Coming Up

first Record: 17-1 | Last week: day 1. As expected, Auburn tore apart Georgia on Wednesday night to remain flawless in the SEC. The last time Auburn won 6-0 in the SEC, was in 1959. For this team to be able to play against that team, they would have to win six more games in a row in a league match. I doubt it will, but it’s still the hottest/best team in the college ring in January. Auburn leads the nation with 152 blocks. A phenomenal home game awaits against Kentucky on Saturday on CBS. 2 Record: 14-2 | Last week: day 4. The Bulldogs host San Francisco tonight – possibly – will be the best WCC game Mark’s team has had to date. Gonzaga is averaging 114 points in the last three/first three games of the tournament. When was the last time Gonzaga scored at least 100 points in three consecutive games? This time. It has never happened before. Gonzaga has also never scored at least 110 points in head-to-head matches until this month. 3 Record: 14-1 | Last week: 8th. Wildcats easily won the previous home day Colorado and Utah since we last met, so 14-1 now marks the best start across 15 games for the U of A since 2014-15. The 3rd place in this week’s AP poll reflects a strong start – Arizona hasn’t been ranked this high since 2017. Arizona has three games left before a power rankings refresh next week, the final game sure to change the order. On Tuesday, it’s Arizona at UCLA. Roadies vs. Stanford and Cal came first, followed by the test at the Pauley Pavilion. So it will be three road games over a period of five days. If Arizona is still the team that only lost a week from now, Tommy Lloyd’s team will certainly be the reality. (And that’s basically what it is.) 4 Record: 15-2 | Last week: day 9. Last Wisconsin had a 15-2 basketball team was 2014-15. You may recall that the team attended the national championship match. The Badgers don’t have the best résumé in the sport but they are certainly very close. With a total of 10 Quad 1 and Quad 2 wins, Wisconsin has more than any other team. Six of those wins were Quad 1. It turns out, Greg Gard is the guy for this gig after all. He’s won 65% of his games since taking over from Bo Ryan in 2015. As for the stat: UW hit the 70-point mark in five consecutive Big Ten wins for the first time in 60 years. A big game on Friday night vs. the state of Michigan pressing. 5 Record: 16-2. Last week: 10th. Kelvin Sampson’s team is this week’s lead Court Report. The Cougars are in the top 10 again, but since there are no All-American contenders on this list and because the American Athletics Conference failed to take place, UH is being covered up a bit. If Houston maybe three or four wins in a row, that probably won’t happen. Next up: a manageable one at home vs. East Carolina this weekend. 6 Record: 15-2. Last week: 12th. The Jayhawks are back from a deficit in the first half vs West Virginia to beat the climbers by 26 points last weekend. On Tuesday, Kansas had a trail conquest against Oklahoma. That W is notable because Ochai Agbaji had the worst game of the season, but that didn’t stop KU from winning. I keep waiting Remy Martin surface significantly. If that happens, the Jayhawks will be a must-see. 7 Record: 16-2 | Last week: Tuesday. Impressive feedback by Baylor to hit the road after two consecutive home defeats, leading by 16 points at half-time in West Virginia, taking the lead completely, but still regaining composure to win 77-68. The Bears had to plummet after losing at home first Oklahoma State, but the fall is mitigated by the winning rally down that road. We are waiting to see how soon James Akinjo (lower back) and Jeremy Sochan (ankle) may return. Akinjo playing at a high level is what confirms Baylor as a finalist candidate. 8 Record: 15-2 | Last week: 14. A respectable doubles win vs. Illinois remove Illini from the rankings and increase Purdue back to its spot in the top 10. One way that Purdue has become the most trusted foul play in college men’s basketball is its free-throw percentage. Boilers took 386 free throws. Their opponents only tried 277. Thursday brings this team in Indiana for the 215th meeting in the chain’s history. It was the most played Big Ten competition. Surprising: Purdue leads the 124-89 series and is on a 5-game winning streak against IU. 9 Record: 15-2 | Last week: 15. Winning 14 consecutive games in the multi-bid conference will land you a good spot at CBS Sports. If you are curious, DavidsonStephen Curry’s longest winning streak is 25. So yes, this team has some work to do to match the legendary 2008-09 team that made up the Elite Eight. This team has eight away wins and is second nationally in terms of 3 points accuracy (42.2%). ten Record: 15-3 | Last week: NR. I barely took the UK off the charts last week, but nothing is holding the Cats back now. Texas A&M tried to chase at home but lost up to six points, becoming the first team this season to keep a number one lead while being beaten by Kentucky. Wildcats is currently the number 3 team in KenPom.com and is the #1 player in Pomeroy KPOY performance. That would of course be Oscar Tshiebwe, who had eight points, 14 rebounds, three blocks and three steals Wednesday night. 11 Record: March 14. Last week: Thursday. The Blues’ loss at FSU on Tuesday night marked the 13th time in a row the Seminoles won in an overtime match. The chance of that happening is 0.1%. Absurdity. This is the eighth time Mike Krzyzewski has lost at State of Florida. Seven of the eight losses were by five points or less. We’re waiting to see how injured (or, ideally, not) Trevor Keels is after going down Tuesday. Keels has a game-changing ability when he is called in and can roam. twelfth Record: 14-3 | Last week: Saturday. When Tom Izzo said his team was overdue for a loss, I believed him. It was the only result for Sparty since Hey Nineteen last week: a 74-72 defeat at home to a Northwest The team with a single win against the top 95 KenPom team will overtake these Spartans. It’s a bad time to lose, as MSU will get four of the next five games on the road. The next two sessions are in Wisconsin on Friday and in Illinois on Tuesday. As it turns out, those three teams are currently sharing the lead in the Big Ten’s losing column with one point each. 13 Record: 14-4 | Last week: 11th. Texas Tech has been leading 2-1 since last week’s Hey Nineteen, so it’s all a small fall. Few people have Red Raiders ahead Texas this season, but that’s where it all started at the end of January. Mark Adams and his team lost at Kansas State on Saturday, that was a bit of a surprise, but K-State continued that with a top lane win over the Longhorns. TTU recovered with a 12 point home win last Tuesday night State of Iowa. 14 Record: 11-2. Last week: Friday. UCLA is clearly hoping that all of its schedule troubles are within sight, but if it is, things are about to get tough. The Bruins have a 10-day run that, starting Friday, will include five games in that period. Before the pandemic, this was virtually unheard of. Now it is the cost of doing business in college basketball. Mick Cronin was outspoken against his school this week when he noted how his team currently has to play home games without fans in attendance, in when the Rams’ home game for the NFL Playoffs Round was filled. We’ll see if things change on that front for the Bruins in February. 15 Record: 15-3 | Last week: day 2. LSU join a road game against Alabama on Wednesday night, there were 15 leads and five relationships. Alabama took 70 points and won the game, marking the most points a team has dropped on LSU this season. Bayou Bengals suffered a heavy defeat due to consecutive defeats, the first match was at home against serious injuries Arkansas. Now a road test against Tennessee on Saturday. Even if the Tigers lose there, I’m still wary of selling to this team. It has tournament potential on the second weekend. 16 Record: 14-1 | Last week: the 19th. The Rams have gone 2-0 this past week with a win at State of San Jose and stay at home New Mexico. A reason for State of ColoradoIts success is in its accuracy when shooting errors, which ranked 7th nationally last season and now 6th (81%). Two years ago, the Rams were 270th. Practice your free gifts, children. Everything should be quiet for the next 10 days; As a result, CSU’s closest rival is January 31 at Wyoming. More about that team in just a moment. 17 Record: 14-2. Last week: NR. That’s right, one of the most recognizable mid-range brands on the market is doing quite well again. Winner of 10 in a row under freshman coach Drew Valentine, the Ramblers were the 6th seed in Jerry Palm’s most recent game. Pattern of bracket structure. A did-you-know: Only Purdue and Loyola Chicago has not suffered a double-digit loss since February 1, 2021. 18 Record: 14-2 | Last week: NR. Some might say a great inclusion. But I have to do it. Wyoming is almost never this good and given how impressive their offensive behavior is – aside from a 3-0 start in the Mountain West game – I would reward recent success including four of them. the team’s five wins in the current streak. or neutral games. Jeff Linder is creating some magic in his second season with this show after flipping the culture at Northern Colorado. 19 Record: 13-6. | Last week: NR. There is no better candidate for the last place. Sure, six losses is a lot compared to all the others ranked above, but winning at Villanova on the given Wednesday night Marquette its first win at the Finneran Pavilion. Shaka Smart’s team is on a 5-game winning streak and has joined the conversation about the NCAA Tournament. There are tough games ahead over the next two weeks against the other tourney contenders, but it’s clearly visible and fair to say that Smart is already one of the best new coaches in his new position. in 2022.
