Posted by admin on Tuesday, February 7, 2012

We are just one month away from the post-season, so now is a great time to check the current rankings. That way, when March Madness starts, you don't have to pretend to know who's good and who's not.

Rankings current as of 2/6/12
AP Top 25 

  1. Kentucky (23-1)
  2. Syracuse (23-1)
  3. Ohio State (20-3)
  4. Missouri (21-2)
  5. North Carolina (20-3)
  6. Baylor (21-2)
  7. Kansas (18-5)
  8. Florida (19-4)
  9. Murray State (23-0)
  10. Duke (19-4)

  22. Michigan (17-7)
  23. Indiana (18-6)
  24. Louisville (18-5)
  25. Harvard (20-2)
So there you have it, the top 25 teams right now, all of them should be making an appearance in March Madness as well.
There are a few things to keep in mind, as well as a couple big games with even bigger implications.
  • Kentucky plays Florida tonight! It will be Kentucky's first ranked opponent in the past two months!
  • Baylor has the toughest schedule this week; Hosting Kansas on Wednesday and then an away game in Missouri on Saturday.
  • There is only one undefeated team in the top 25 (Murray State), much thanks to their wimpy schedule.
  •  Harvard rounds out the poll at No. 25, beating out unranked Gonzaga, Iowa State, Southern Mississippi and Notre Dame. Come tournament time, the "smart money" isn't going to pick Harvard over the aforementioned teams.
Who are you rooting for this season? Is your team ranked? Do you even think these rankings matter? Anyone not listed you think will make a run in March? Let me know!
