College Basketball’s Super Season

On Tuesday night, something happened in college basketball that hadn’t happened in five seasons.

For the first time since Jan. 21, 2012, three of the top four teams in the AP poll lost on the same day.

#1 Villanova’s Jalen Brunson and Darryl Reynolds missed chances to tie near the basket in the final seconds, and Marquette upset the top-ranked and defending champion Wildcats 74-72 on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, second-ranked Kansas — which was a 2½ -point underdog — lost 85-69 at No. 18 West Virginia, and fourth-ranked Kentucky suffered an 82-80 setback at Tennessee.

 

 

 

 

 

In a season full of extraordinary performances and awesome team play, Tuesday was special.

While everybody is sleeping, this has been the best college basketball regular season in quite some time. There are at least 10 teams that have a legit shot of winning the whole shebang in April.

 

Team to watch – Arizona 

While most people are just learning about frosh forward Lauri Markkanen, the return of Allonzo Trier from a PED suspension (what???) makes this a truly a complete team.  They thorough outplayed who I believed is the best team in the nation, now it may be Arizona.  Sean Miller has the keys to a Ferrari, lets hope he doesn’t crash.
