We are a fair and just program, therefore, we open the show with rutger who picked up a pair of big wins over Ohio State and in Madison against Wisconsin. Elsewhere, USC knocked off UCLA for their first marquee win of the season, Arkansas took down #1 Auburn, and Virginia Tech is on the way up with 6 straight wins. Memphis is another team that is getting back on track with 5 straight wins and a win over Houston, Baylor fighting through injuries and continuing to win, and lastly, Kansas State took care of Iowa State and West Virginia to continue to build their resume.
There was a clear big loser last week and it was Houston. The Cougars lost to SMU and Memphis in a weak AAC, yes they have dealt with injuries, but these are still games they should be winning. Marquette, after receiving big praise from this program loses to UConn and Butler. Iowa State has lost 4 straight including games to West Virginia and Kansas State last week. Oregon was in the process of getting back on track before a bad loss to Cal, Duke fell at home to Virginia on one of the most basic in-bounds plays in basketball, and Saint Mary’s lost to Santa Clara.
