March Madness is Upon us as the top 3 teams all lost last weekend
As March approaches and College basketball hits madness month, last weekend is a perfect example of why March Madness will once again be unpredictable and exciting. The top 3 teams all lost last weekend and with seeding and conference tournaments approaching, there is no clear cut team that is going to be a heavy favorite to win the National Championship. Syracuse is No. 1 in The Associated Press’ Top 25, taking advantage of a weekend when the poll’s top three teams lost.
The Orange were the runaway top pick Monday, receiving 59 first-place votes from the national media panel to make the jump from fourth. This is their first time on top since a six-week run during the 1989-90 season.
Kansas, which had the other six first-place votes, dropped to second following its loss at Oklahoma State. Kentucky, which has the same 27-2 record as the two teams above it, dropped one place after losing at Tennessee.
Duke was fourth followed by Kansas State, Ohio State and Purdue, which fell from third to seventh after losing to Michigan State.
Texas, which was No. 1 for two weeks in January, fell out of the Top 25 after losing for the seventh time in 12 games.
