Wednesday Quickies: Another New #1 Edition

There will be a new #1 team next week after Louisville fell last night

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Louisville Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

It’s not a good year to be the #1 team in college basketball.

Michigan State, Kentucky, and Duke have all held the spot this season and lost shortly after gaining that spot. Louisville jumped up to take the #1 spot, but last night, the Cardinals fell to Texas Tech, so we should expect to have another #1 team next week.

Kansas, currently ranked #2, will likely jump up to the top spot with Ohio State right behind, barring any other major upset. It could be argued that Ohio State may actually have the better resume at this point in the season, but they likely won’t jump the Jayhawks.

There is quite a bit of parity in college basketball this season, so don’t expect Kansas or Ohio State to remain #1 for very long. This year it is anybody’s game with no truly dominant teams in college basketball this year, which bodes well for Kentucky going forward.

College basketball continues to be unpredictable. Gotta love it!
