    Duke lost and moved up 5 spots, SMH.

      Moved up 1 in the Coaches poll too, everything in college hoops must be back to normal.

    Funny, my brother predicted the Duke move! Makes you want to puke doesn’t it? He also said a week ago that if Duke won at they’d be a No 1 seed. By the look of things that could happen as well.

    I feel pretty confident about March if Louisville is considered the 11th best team in the country.

    IF we can get healthy for March, is there a team that would want to play us on a “neutral” court? Because barring a west region assignment, tourney games are more home games than neutral for us. Plus, our team is eerily similar to the 2 UCONN teams with Shabazz and Kemba with us having Tyler and there being no dominant team.

    Hasn’t l-ville lost 2 out of it’s last four games and ranked 11th and havent we won 4 of the last 5 games. I could be wrong.

    The Tourney is wide open for the most part. It should be a fun one, but could also be frustrating. If the Cats can get healthy, play some D, and get some boards out of the frontcourt, big things could happen. Similarly, disaster could strike.

    Additionally, I hope the refs aren’t as big a storyline in March as they’ve been throughout the season – and not just UK games. They’ve been terrible all-around in many games.

    I also said that Duke would move up and KY down if UK lost on the road! Losing Willis might have had something to do with some ballots being cast lower. I also doubt we will be seeing Willis until the SEC tourney is then.

    Duke is terrible, I never seen a team FLOP SO MUCH, and then they GET THE FOUL CALL. Grayson Allen falls down like 15 times a game, he literally spends most of the game on the ground. This is going to be a Mercer year for them. They are not good.

    Don’t see why people get upset. Duke is always given easiest run to championship game. NCAA are gonna make certain Duke is set up come tourney time. I’m willing to say they could lose out the rest of the year and still end up a 4 or 5 seed.

    I’d love to know if, in the history of the poll, a team has ever lost a game, and moved up 20% in the rankings.
    Must have been one helluva game, the 2 teams moved up a combined 12 spots!

      Is there any doubt that Duke will be Top 10 next Monday, win or lose?
