Breakfast of Champions
As it stands right now in college basketball rankings, UNC is on the top. The Tar heels have managed to move out ahead of all the teams in the college basketball rankings with their consistent wins and top players. The UNC team was a favorite going into the season for 2008/ 2009. They are definitely keeping themselves there. In their last game they were still on top with winning the game.
They are a college basketball team to beat. Unfortunately it is not going to be easy to stay on the top of the college basketball rankings with last week's wins and losses.
Duke University, another North Carolina college basketball team has increased their performance. In years past Duke has been floundering as the top team, with too much attention to media hype and getting funding. It seems this year the coach has taken away the distractions and allowed the players to do what they love; play basketball. Duke won their game last week to get in to the Number 4 spot in rankings. Duke also won against Purdue on Tuesday this week with 76 to 60. In college basketball rankings, they are the second team to beat.
On another note for college basketball rankings, Ohio is stepping it up. Ohio has been a struggling college basketball team this year. It was unsure if Ohio would really be able to pull out the stuff and do a great job. Last week's game against Miami certainly gave Ohio the winning chance. In the final Ohio were 73 with Miami at 68. The win was not a huge stretch, but definitely needed, especially to stay up in the college basketball rankings, It is hard to say if Ohio would have won based on merit alone with such a close game though. Florida's top scorer McClinton was taken out of the game for a foul play. Without this college basketball teams mvp,McClinton, in the game it was easy for Ohio to get rid of the 14 point lead of the Hurricanes and win the game. Holding their place in the college basketball rankings.
Daniel Holston was another member of a college basketball team to note on last week's games. During the play Holston looked like he was stuck in dribbling down the court. He was being blocked on all directions, and time was running out. However, with a bit of a fake move Holston was able to get rid of the defense and shot the ball for the win.
Kyle Singler last week was another team member that helped the college basketball team get the win. He had 20 points alone for his team and 12 rebound shots.
Whether it was a single player or the team as a whole last week definitely had some great performances all around, with a few surprising turns. Florida was the worst of bad performances having McClinton taken out, but they can still rally according to the college basketball rankings.
