Top teams go down!

Wow! I don't think anyone expect the top teams to get so mixed up this weekend.

--Kansas-- Everyone has an off game! I still would put them a top my hardest teams to beat list and thus most likely to win it all. Yes they had an off game, but still I don't think there is any reason for Kansas fans to get all upset just yet. Losing to in my opinion underrated Ok State team on the road is not a bad loss. Came at maybe a bad time because if they had won then they would have a clear edge for the number one overall seed at this point. ( i know there are still a ton of games to be played before selection Sunday, but there would still be an edge at this point.)

--Kentucky-- Loss really doesn't do anything to hurt your team. You lost on the road to a top 20 team. I mean it is a bummer to ever lose but once again not the end of the world. (as much as all you fans out there may disagree) Tenn is a good team and has been getting better as the season has progressed. I would say they are climbing their way into may people's minds of being a tough out if not a sleeper pick to go a long way into the tournament.

--Purdue-- Sorry fans, i have just 6 words to describe what is going to be a bummer of an end to a season where you could have won it all, Hummel is out for the season. There really isn't much else to say. I feel for you though, tough tough break!

--Syracuse-- Um... WOW! so what was hyped as one of the best games at the end of the regular season turned out to be awful. I have taken an interest in the play from this team since the beginning of the year, and I have come up with one interesting thought. The other teams on this list look really really good. (or at least you did until you lost your best player) Syracuse makes the team they are playing look a lot worse than they are. The way the Orange is beating people makes it look like they take whatever your game plan is and take it away from you. I have been impressed with this team all year, but recently have got conformation they are going to be a tough team to beat in the tournament, because you have no chance to prepare for that 2-3 zone they play so well.
