Who is the new # 1 team in the nation? I don't know if anybody really wants to be #1 since it has been a sure sign you are going to lose but who should it be? Michigan, Syracuse or Kansas.
My vote would go to Kansas because they have been playing well on both sides of the ball. Michigan is probably the most talented team but they are simply outscoring everyone and don't seem too interested in defending. Syracuse looked good there last game, especially MCW, but I am still not sold on them. What are your thoughts?
I'm going with Michigan or Kansas, I liked how Kansas handled their business last night against rival Kansas state
Kansas has earned their turn. But the fact that we have a new #1 every week just shows the parody in college basketball this year and I love it.
Kansas is the better defensive team, but Michigan is no slouch defensively either.
Kansas gives up 59.1 pts/game
Michigan gives up 59.5 pts/game and that number has nothing to do with pace.
Can't go wrong with either, but if they were to play each other today I'd probably favor Kansas since they have the better size and experience.
They have the best point guard in the country, excellent size on the wing, depth on the wing, depth down low, and great versatility (esp. when Southerland comes back).
Plus they beat The Ville in the KFC Yummy Center.
does anyone have a better resume then arizona? I mean zona crushed miami when they went at it. Losing by a couple points on the road to top 15 oregon is not a terrible loss. And they beat teams like florida and san diego state.
Arizona has a terrific resume, LLP, but they also have 2 serious holes: lack of a true PG and lack of a dominant post presence. Sean Miller is a brilliant coach.
To me, Syracuse, Indiana, and Louisville (although they can't really shoot) are the 3 most complete teams in the country and will be duking it out come March.
I will bet any amount of money that 1 of those 3 will win it all.
