In addition to the KenPom’s, I ran the WAB’s for Massey today and… they are freakishly similar to the KenPom WAB’s. That wasn’t the case last year and I’m not sure what’s going on.

In other news, Clemson pulled off a nice win, North Carolina was stuck with a loss, Kentucky avoided a huge loss, but the real news is that Syracuse is heading to Georgia Tech tonight. A win would put them comfortably on the positive side of the ledger. Let’s not talk about the possibility of a loss.

Seriously, the Massey numbers are so similar I had to run a few error checks, but it doesn’t appear to be a bug on my end.

I’m going to be running multiple WAB’s in advance of the NCAA release of the top four seed lines (top 16 overall teams). First up is the Sagarin WAB’s (with the KenPom WAB’s for comparison).

The first thing that jumps out at me is that Sagarin is much more respectful towards the Big 12. KenPom has the North Carolina and Oklahoma resumes as being roughly equal. Sagarin strongly disagrees, much preferring Oklahoma’s. Texas and Kansas State see their rank jump five spots. So does Syracuse (woohoo!).

Of all the teams on the positive side of the ledger, Nevada is most hurt by the change in ratings. Ultimately, the differences seem fairly minor. I’m struck by how similar both the ratings and rankings are overall.

You beat Duke on their home turf. That puts Virginia in line to be the #1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. In more immediate terms, they’ve risen to the top of the WAB standings.

Villanova will have a chance to reclaim the WAB lead if they can grab a win at Marquette today.

So, that happened. It’ll be hard for Ohio State to work themselves back into the top ten. There aren’t any major games tonight (sorry Bucky). Tomorrow at 2 PM we get Virginia at Duke. If Virginia wins, they’ll pretty much lock themselves onto the 1-line. A loss won’t be that damaging though, and they’ll still have plenty of opportunities to pick up high profile wins.

Michigan takes on Purdue in tonight’s big early game. A win would put Michigan in the top 16 of the WAB standings. More likely, Purdue will strengthen their case for a #1 seed.

Most importantly, Syracuse pounded Boston College last night, putting them in reach of positive territory with a win at Pittsburgh on Saturday.
