NCAA Basketball Top 25 Power Rankings: Conference Tourney Edition
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The season where no one wanted to be No. 1. That's how we'll remember 2013.

Actually, the craziness that is sure to ensue over the next few weeks will probably be how we remember 2013. 

Over a two-day span just this past weekend, we had winners in the final seconds (most buzzer-beaters) by Alabama, Marquette, Belmont, Valparaiso, Wright State, McNeese State, Central Arkansas, George Washington, Air Force, Houston, Idaho State, Wisconsin and Indiana. 

Whew. 

The sharing is caring mentality at the top was evident by the power six conference races that (sort of) got decided this weekend. 

Michigan was a rotation of the ball away from making the Big Ten a four-way tie for first. Kansas and Kansas State both lost on Saturday to guarantee themselves a share of the Big 12 title instead of winning it outright. And in the final year of the Big East as we knew it, three teams (Georgetown, Marquette and Louisville) shared the final title. 

Trophies for everyone! 

In the ACC and SEC, where Miami and Florida ran away with the conference crowns weeks ago, they both tried to come back to the field over the last few weeks. 

No lead is safe. No team is a sure-thing. Get your red marker ready for your bracket. 

Here's one final attempt at ranking the best 25 before the madness proceeds.
