- Another night, another switch on the top lines with Indiana losing at Illinois in a thriller. While the top 3 lines are taking shape as a group, it looks like it will be a constant shuffling down the stretch as the hot teams try to emerge in a year without any dominant teams.
- BYU did what it couldn't do. They lost to somebody in conference not named Gonzaga or St. Mary's. I have replaced the Cougars with the Gaels, but with only 3 Top 100 wins, it is going to be tough for St. Mary's without beating Gonzaga at some point.
- Good wins by Colorado and Illinois gave them some breathing room after they were squandering quality non-conference seasons. Missouri continues to slide and looks more like a 10 seed at this point. NC State and Oregon are on similar skids as the middle of the bracket is one big jumble.
