While college basketball is seemingly becoming more confusing with each passing game, three teams have made a tremendous push over the last month of the season. St Louis is in a prime position to win the Atlantic 10 outright. Georgetown, finally took sole possession of first place after their victory over Syracuse. Gonzaga has been running through the WCC with relative ease.
The St. Louis Billikens lost two of their first three games in the Atlantic 10. Now St. Louis is sitting on top of the very strong conference with a (10-2) record. They have won 9 games in a row, and have a chance to earn a top 3 seed if they win out. Last week, the Billikens beat VCU and Butler, to solidify them as the best team.
Georgetown also has won nine games in a row. If the Hoyas win the Big East, they have a real shot at a number one seed. Otto Porter has put himself in position for player of the year.
As of now, Gonzaga is sitting on the top line for a number one seed. They are only playing for seeding the rest of the way. If they win out, Gonzaga will represent the west.
All three teams are represented in this week’s power poll. See where your favorite team lands in this week.
Miami, Michigan State and Syracuse suffered big losses.
