Basketball Rankings
Checking in again, the ACC no longer has four top five teams, but they are still the premier league. They have three top ten Sagarin teams. #1 Duke, #4 Georgia Tech, #10 Wake Forest. Conference USA has two with #3 Louisville and #8 Cincinnati.

Earlier, UConn Texas and Florida had lagged in the computer rankings due to soft schedules, but they have both rocketed up more recently to #7, #9 and #13.

Syracuse is still lagging at #32 for Sagarin, but remains high at #13 in the AP. Marquette has dropped out of the AP list, and is still #88 for Sagarin. Sagarin still has Oklahoma low, at #61, and the AP is heading in that direction. He also has Kansas down at #33 and Creigton at #36, instead of #12 and #26.

Overall, the two lists are converging, but the computer still favors a couple cinderellas.
Team................Sagarin......AP
Gonzaga...............6...........15
Miss State...........12...........19
Vandy.................14............22
Providence..........20...........30
NC State.............24............35

And this does not include Providence's win over UConn. Interesting stuff.
