This season, two things seem to be true, as can be seen in tonight’s results:
Some really good teams are getting beat by even better teams. There are more differentials between teams now than the have’s and have-not’s.
Examples from today:
No. 4 Louisville 68, No. 22 Florida State 49
No. 15 Kentucky 52, No. 25 Missouri 41
No. 24 Texas A&M 69, Auburn 67
North Carolina 81, Virginia Tech 69
Some teams that did well in preconference play are stumbling in conference.
Example from today:
Purdue 64, Minnesota 53
No. 8 NC State is a perfect 19-0 after their 54-51 win over Clemson.
Indiana 70, Michigan 60
Duke got their first ACC win, 66-52 over Wake Forest
Vanderbilt 80, Ole Miss 68
Virginia 74, Pitt 57
Arkansas 72, Alabama 61
Northwestern 58, Nebraska 54
