This week in college basketball has been a crazy one. The top four teams went down leaving the country in shock. Tomorrow we will find out about both the AP and the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll, but until then all that can be done is speculation.
So here it is, my prediction of what the top 10 will look like tomorrow afternoon after we see where the media ranks the schools.
Arizona will more than likely jump into the top 10. They are one of the hottest teams in college hoops right now and have not lost since they were blown out by Washington a month ago.
Arizona is led by 6'8" forward Derrick Williams who is eating the Pac-10 for breakfast.
He is averaging 19.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. Williams is a difference maker for Arizona and considering he is just a sophomore, big things await him in the future.
With all the teams losing this week and with Arizona beating Washington, arguably the second best team in the conference, they should move up to 10 this week.
Although they lost to UConn earlier this week by six, that was a tough game against a ranked opponent, I doubt that drops them at all, especially with the losses that happened this week.
Georgetown the past few games has been led by Chris Wright who has just gone crazy the past few games scoring a combined 45 points the past two games.
With the Big East race wide-open, it looks as though Georgetown has a great shot at jumping in and taking it.
Now BYU isn't dropping because they loss, they are dropping because their schedule just isn't allowing them to stay at the top, and when a team plays lackluster teams, it's easy to drop a spot every now and then.
BYU is, of course, led by Mr. Jimmer Fredette who is the lead candidate for National Player of the Year. Ferdette is averaging 27.2 points per game and is just playing un-human-like.
BYU is a good team, and if they can beat SDSU again, they will more than likely move up once more.
Purdue had a great week. They started off the week by beating the 10th ranked Wisconsin Badgers and finished it off on Sunday by beating the No. 2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes.
Purdue was led by their two stars E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson who both had great games in both outings. Against Ohio State, Moore had 38 points and was god-like, knocking down everything in sight.
The Boilermakers should be rewarded for their two top-10 victories and put in the top 10 themselves.
Texas is a star-studded team that plays some of the best defense in the country. They are a very talented team and could make a lot of noise in the postseason.
They are dropping because of a loss to Nebraska this week but are in a position to climb back out of it.
They are by far one of the best teams in the nation and will more than likely secure a one seed for the NCAA tournament i they don't suffer a drop off.
I mean, dropping SDSU down could probably happen and might, but I just can't see it.
Having only one loss is just something that should be rewarded and is. SDSU is led by Kawhi Leonard who is scoring 15.2 points per game.
SDSU is led and coached by experience, and that will continue throughout the season. They might just prove to be the real deal.
Ohio State came off their tough loss in Madison and rebounded with a great win against Michigan State. After their game with the Spartans, they were forced to travel to West Lafayette, Indiana, where they were beat by the Purdue Boilermakers.
Ohio State is arguably the best team in the nation. Don't take the fact that they lost to Purdue by 13. Being at the game, it was the loudest environment I've personally witnessed. It would have been difficult for anyone to win in Mackey Arena on Sunday.
Ohio State is stacked with talent and will make some serious noise this March. With Jared Sullinger in the post and Lighty and Diebler on the wings, they make for a tough matchup.
Pittsburgh had an opportunity to jump to the top of the polls but were beaten in the last few seconds of the game by St. Johns at the Garden.
Pittsburgh is loaded with talent and is one of the best teams in the Big East this season. They are looking like they will win the Big East title and just need to hold steady to reach the one seed during the Big Dance. Unfortunately, there are only four one seeds in the tourney, so they will need to finish strong.
Pitt is long and athletic and really dominates opponents when playing well. They will be a tough out.
Kansas was embarrassed this week by their rival Kansas State in what turned out to be a blowout. Although it was a blowout, you have to consider it to be a rivalry game, yet that still is not reason to get blown out like that.
Kansas is a great team that has numerous players with some serious talent.
Look for Kansas to win the Big 12 and possibly split it with Texas, but I just don't see Kansas giving it up to Texas in the end.
The Duke Blue Devils have been on a tear since getting embarrassed by St. Johns at the Garden.
They haven't lost in a while and are playing great. Coach K really has this team fired up and playing well without Irving.
Nolan Smith is playing out of his mind right now, and it's going to be tough for anyone in the ACC to step up and beat this great team.
Duke has not lost in a while, and that is why they will be No. 1 when the polls come out.
