College basketball gets crazier by the week
(AP) Wisconsin’s tying half-court heave went in, of course. Then Kansas lost again. And in case you were asleep late Saturday night, Notre Dame rallied past Louisville in five overtimes. March Madness is weeks away, but February Frenzy is already in full swing. Six more Top 25 teams went down Saturday, including two of the top five. When the next Associated Press poll comes out Monday, it likely will have a new No. 1 for the sixth straight week – marking the second-longest such streak since the first rankings in 1949. Top-ranked Indiana, No. 2 Florida and No. 3 Michigan each have dropped a game in the past week. The Hoosiers fell 74-72 at Illinois on Thursday and the Gators trailed by as many as 27 during the second half of an 80-69 loss at Arkansas last Tuesday. The current string of No. 1 swapping is the longest since 1994, when Arkansas, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA and Duke alternated at the top seven straight weeks.
