As the college football season starts to wind down you better believe that the basketball season will be heating up. Each week the men are going to continue to separate themselves from the boys until in the end we have the best of the best playing for all the marbles because March Madness will be here before you know it.
Take UConn as an example. The Huskies looked like one of the men early on, but are now on the outside looking in. However a big win this week (like over No. 18 North Carolina State) could go a long way with voters.
Breaking back in (or in for those that haven't been ranked before, getting in) is the theme for most teams this week. A win of for Texas over Georgetown could be enough to get the Longhorns ranked. San Diego State will have a tough time staying in the top 25 this week. UCLA needs to start putting up before they are told to simply shut up.
The only game between ranked teams is tonight; No. 2 Duke and No. 4 Ohio State. If you can't watch it you might want to set your DVR.
