ACC Basketball Power Rankings: Week 7
The ACC just continues to shine brightest. With so much talent, how does that affect this week’s power rankings?
As I have been mentioning for weeks, the Atlantic Coast Conference is loaded. To further prove my point, the NCAA released a sneak peak at the their top 16 teams.
The ACC represented five of those teams, or nearly one third of the top line. Only the Big 12 and Pac 12 came close with three teams each.
That means the rest of Division I had as many teams on the top line combined as the ACC did.
In fact the only thing stronger than the ACC right now is the UConn Women’s team who will that for win 100 in a row Monday night.
So with that thought locked in, let’s delve into this week’s power rankings.
