College Basketball Power Rankings: B/R Experts' Week 9 Poll
Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Remember that beast Chane Behanan who manhandled Michigan in the national championship game last season? Where did that dude go?

Louisville would like to know, because the team that was preseason No. 1 in these Power Rankings—with Behanan's return as a major reason why—has not looked the part in games where anyone is paying attention.

The Cardinals look good when they're beating up on their inferior opponents, but it's hard to get impressed when your best win is over Southern Miss. That's one of only two wins Louisville has against teams ranked in Ken Pomeroy's top 100 (subscription required) this season—No. 97 Louisiana Lafayette being the other.

Now, the Cards are dropping in these rankings—10 spots this week after Saturday's 73-66 loss at Kentucky—looking vulnerable as they enter their only season in the American Athletic Conference and searching for someone other than Russ Smith and Chris Jones who can make a shot.

O Behanan of April, where art thou?

 

Teams to Watch: Gonzaga, Pittsburgh, LSU, Toledo 

Dropped out of Power Rankings: None
