Last week’s theme in NCAA basketball was ranked teams getting knocked off by unranked opponents, and the upsets aren’t going to stop in Week 15. A wealth of highly-regarded (and highly-ranked) teams are in serious jeopardy of being this week’s answer to Florida or Kansas.
One of the most successful teams at risk for a fall this week is the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Although Kelly Olynyk and his mates haven’t lost in West Coast Conference action, they’ll face their toughest opponent yet when they visit St. Mary’s on Valentine’s night.
Herein, a closer look at the challenge facing the Zags and 14 more high-powered teams that could be in for an upsetting week.
Note: for purposes of this list, only games against teams unranked in the Week 14 polls were considered as prospective upsets. Any ranked team beating another barely counts as a surprise in this wide-open season.
