NCAA Basketball Rankings: Parity Late in Season Is Good for College Hoops
NCAA Basketball Rankings Show Multiple Teams With First-Place Votes, Which Is Good
The new NCAA basketball rankings are out, and Duke has taken over the top spot. Spots two through six are held by the same five teams, but in different orders depending on the ESPN or AP polls.
Kansas, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, San Diego State and Texas have all earned at least one first-place vote, and in fact, Pittsburgh is ranked fourth and sixth having the second-most first place votes behind Duke.
What does this mean for college basketball? Quite simply, not having that clear favorite is actually a good thing. All these teams have a shot at winning the national championship, with none of them seemingly able to gain an edge over the other.
More importantly, it will make the March Madness brackets look very different for everyone that's filling them out. Instead of everyone picking Duke or North Carolina or Kansas for a title, other teams will be slipping into the picture, and it will make for a far more exciting month.
I know I can't wait for the NCAA conference tournaments to start.
