WAB 12/20: Villanova is still on top

Defending Champions Villanova lead the initial WAB rankings, although UCLA’s results are slightly more difficult for an average bubble team to replicate. Gonzaga and Baylor round out a clear top 4 in terms of resume. I expect to see Duke rise up these rankings as their squad becomes fully operational. However, the key takeaway from the initial WAB rankings is that Syracuse has a lot of work to do. 😦
