ESPN/USA Coaches Poll Top 10

Surprise, surprise. The Duke Blue Devils are #1 again, but as you can see some big changes took place this weekend in the college basketball standings. While I was watching Ohio State play the South Carolina Gamecocks this weekend, I was looking for the Buckeyes to "slip up" or the Gamecocks to mount a comeback. I was wrong, Ohio State is for real and demolished USC through the dominance of their highly talented freshman, Jared Sullinger. Though the top two teams are college basketball powerhouses, Kansas is a shaky #3. What do I mean by this? Well, if you tuned into sports show this weekend you may have saw that Kansas just barely squeaked by the USC Trojans on the Jayhawks homecourt. Again, another freshman, Josh Selby, stepped up in order to hit a clutch three point pointer allowing Kansas to edge the Trojans, 70-68. Yes, there next three games are against California, Texas-Arlington, and Miami OH, but NOT SO FAST!! Circle January 17th and 22nd on your calendar sports fans, as the Jayhawks travel to Baylor (currently ranked #15) and host #22 Texas the next week. I predict both of these games to be losses for Kansas as the Longhorns are looking to climb in the ranks while Baylor continues to silently win games week in and out. Continue to check the Point After for upcoming games this week. Tis the season, "IT'S AWESOME BABY!!"
Oh yeah, and look where my San Diego State Aztecs are right now?
1) Duke
