Remember when Duke lost three games in ten days to close out the month of February? Yet somehow, some way, they failed to drop a single spot in the updated NCAA NET rankings, holding strong at No. 6 all the way through?
Wait till you hear what happened to Kentucky after losing its first game since the team’s road loss at Auburn on Feb. 1.
While the Blue Devils were able to lose three of four games without a hiccup in the NET rankings, the Wildcats managed to fall a whopping SEVEN spots when the latest update was published this morning.
Check out the top 25 of the rankings, featuring Kentucky’s fall from No. 14 overall – a head-scratcher in itself, considering the Wildcats were ranked No. 6 overall in the AP and Coaches Polls – to No. 21 following a single loss.
On one hand, Kentucky has no say in the matter when they choke away a 17-point lead in the second half to a poor Tennessee team at home on Senior Night. Don’t lose, and you don’t leave your ranking and/or seeding up to chance.
On the other, seven spots? Get out of here with that nonsense.
Throw the whole system away.
