Oklahoma State, Butler and Colorado enter the rankings this week, while Notre Dame, Saint Joseph’s and Murray State say goodbye. Georgetown almost created chaos at the top of the rankings, but couldn’t stop Indiana in overtime. The Hoyas will visit the rankings soon. No doubt about it.

Talk about Cody Zeller all you want, but the Hoosiers wouldn’t be the well-rounded, efficient team they are without Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford. All three responded when Georgetown pushed the Hoosiers to overtime Tuesday night. Good teams win gamesExpand Description

The Wolverines have been idle since that 77-47 destruction of Cleveland State on Nov. 13. Their game Wednesday against Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden will be a good barometer for both teams.

Can’t blame Duke for being a little sluggish at the start against Florida Gulf Coast. The Blue Devils made up for with a 30-0 run to take control. Mason Plumlee’s free throw exhibition (10 of 11) was quite impressive.

Poor Lafayette. The Leopards ran into Kyle Wiltjer’s 3-point shooting and the Kentucky buzz saw after the Wildcats lost to Duke in Atlanta.

Center Patric Young decided he wanted to be part of the college hoops parade for centers Tuesday night. His 13 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks rocked the world of Savannah State in a 58-40 victory for the Gators.

Saint Louis decided not to guard Travis Releford in the first half Tuesday. That was a big mistake. Then, when the Billikens picked up Releford, big Jeff Withey killed them inside. Good win for the Jayhawks.

The Bluejays have won their first four games by margins of 20, 17, 36 and 48 points. Doug McDermott scored 17 points Tuesday vs. Longwood. Creighton deserves top-10 recognition and could stick around a long time.

A four-point win over Boise State? What was this a preview of the Big East division of the Big Ten? Keith Appling saved the day again after a slow start for the Spartans.

Maui hasn’t always been kind to coach Roy Williams. Tuesday night, it was Butler kicking the Tar Heels around in the first half. A furious effort in the second half wasn’t enough to save UNC.

UConn transfer Alex Oriakhi can block shots and rebound. Tigers coach Frank Haith wants some points production from Oriakhi, too. If that happens inside, it will help Mizzou’s perimeter game.

Things were going smoothly for the Wolfpack. A win over Penn State. A win over Massachusetts. Then came the bump in the road, a 76-56 loss to Oklahoma State in the championship game of the Puerto Rico Tipoff. A bad start for the Wolfpack and poor rebounding led to the stunning result.Collapse Description

Coach Josh Pastner said he was disappointed in his team’s "lack of everything" in a 65-54 victory over Samford. Pastner said the Tigers were slow in all areas. With VCU next on the schedule, that has to change.

Coach Brad Stevens has Butler riding the big waves in Maui. A dramatic win over Marquette and a dominant effort against North Carolina is a good way to get the attention of the basketball world. Illinois is up next.
