College Basketball Today And Highlights
There were quite a few upsets on Saturday and in the midst of that, several powerhouse teams, including Duke and Kentucky continue to trend the wrong way and could be among the idlers next month when March Madness begin.
Without a doubt the biggest surprise Saturday came in the Big 12 matchup between No. 17 West Virginia and No. 23 Kansas, after the Mountaineers (13-5) hammered the Jayhawks (12-7) 91-79.
It was the fifth defeat in the last seven games for Kansas, which will certainly join the likes of Duke, North Carolina and Kentucky outside of the Top 25 when the rankings are released again on Monday.
Also falling on the college basketball scoreboard on Saturday was No. 6 Texas, which struggled to overcome the pressure of an improving Oklahoma State and went down 75-67 in double overtime.
The Longhorns (11-5) have now loss three straight games will definitely take a stumble in the next rankings.
Oklahoma State (12-5), meanwhile, was winning its third game in the last four and will search for another win at Kansas State on Tuesday.
Also going down Saturday was No. 10 Alabama (15-5) which lost to No. 18 Missouri, 68-65, while No. 21 UCLA (13-4) suffered a shocking 66-48 defeat to Southern Cal 66-48.
Meanwhile, No. 25 Drake (18-0) continued its fantastic run this season after beating Valparaiso 80-77 for an 18th successive victory this campaign. The Bulldogs will hunt a 19th in succession against the same opponent on Sunday.
