WAB 2/26: Gonzaga falls back to Earth

I’m just running the KenPom WAB’s today. Kansas is well clear of the field, with Villanova the solid #2. North Carolina has moved into third. The real question is who is #4? Baylor has been fading, and Gonzaga just took a huge hit. Could Kentucky or Florida sneak in? It’s hard to tell, and it should make for a fun championship week.

In other news, Clemson stayed true to themselves. Miami knocked off Duke, who is sliding back. They have two tough games remaining (Florida State, at North Carolina), so they may find themselves slipping down into the 4-5 line.

Today we’ll see if Syracuse can pull off the miracle at Louisville. Butler and Xavier face off in a tough Big East clash. The most interesting game of the day might be Wisconsin at Michigan State. Can the Badgers right the ship? We’ll know later today.
