It hasn’t been a fun week for the top teams in college basketball, with unranked opponents knocking off the nation’s supposed powerhouses right and left. Of course, all those upsets mean plenty of chances for lower-ranked teams to climb, even though it’s been only a week since our last look at the country’s 25 best.
One squad that’s made huge strides this week is the Pitt Panthers. Lamar Patterson and company have risen to third place in the Big East thanks to a pair of conference wins, including a hard-earned victory at Cincinnati.
Check out more on the Panthers and the rest of the upward (and downward) movers in this week’s look at the 25 best teams in college hoops.
