NCAA Basketball: Illinois Chasing History

*Due to technical difficulties with the site a lot of information for this week was lost. However there are still fresh rankings and a look at some of the top performers of the past week.

Illinois will look to complete the first perfect Big 10 season since Indiana in 1976 over the next few weeks, and there appears to be little holding them back. That being said, its going to be interesting to see if the Illini can stay hot, especially since the Big 10 tourney and first round the of the NCAA tourney are in Chicago. Even if Illinois drops a game before the season ends, theres still no reason to think the selection committee won't place them in Chicago anyway. Also an interesting note, the selection committee met this past weekend for the first time as they do every year, however this year they failed to come up with a consensus on the feild for the first time. Very intersting...

Top 10 (*previous ranking)
1. Illinois (25-0) (1)
2. Kansas (20-1) (3)
3. Wake Forest (21-3) (5)
4. North Carolina (20-3) (2)
5. Boston College (20-1) (4)
6. Oklahoma St. (19-3) (10)
7. Kentucky (19-2) (9)
8. Syracuse (22-3) (7)
9. Alabama (19-4) (NR)
10. Louisville (21-4) (6)

just missed: Duke; UCONN; Utah; Pittsburgh
dropped: (8) Duke

Mid Major Power 5
1. Gonzaga (19-4) (1)
2. U of Pacific (20-2) (4)
3. Southern Illinois (20-6) (NR)
4. Vermont (18-4) (2)
5. Old Dominion (23-3) (NR)

dropped: (3) St. Mary's (CA); (5) Wichita St.
note* Bracket Buster games this weekend will truly show what a lot of these teams can accomplish. But know that Gonzaga, Pacific, and whoever wins the Missouri Valley Conference will be tough competition for any major conference team come tournament time.

Big Man On Campus
Utah C/F Andrew Bogut vs Colorado St.
33 pts 16 rbs 3 assts 5 blks 2 stls
* Bogut continues to show night in and night out why people think he may be the best college big man since Tim Duncan at Wake Forest. Bogut is aggressive, but has a soft touch both at the basket, and passing out of double and triple teams to cutters or open 3 point shooters. As Bogut goes, so go the Utes, but look for his strong play to continue throughout the rest of the season.
