#10 Oregon lost to #20 Colorado yesterday. The Ducks scored 91 (just over their then best in the nation 90 ppg) but the Buffaloes scored 100. CU's Askia Booker, who hit a running, half-court, game-winning shot to beat Kansas in Boulder on Dec 7, scored 27 to hand Oregon its first L of the season. #4 'Sconsin! beat #22 Iowa to remain undefeated as Iowa coach flips out. Badgers looking good, I'd say: they're still my #2. The Wichita State University Shockers are now #8 in the AP poll at 15-0 after they beat Northern Iowa by 14. Two of the schizoid triplets lost in the second tier: #16 Kansas lost at home to a very strong San Diego State team, and had to scramble to lose by only 4. Jayhawks shot UNDER 30% were outrebounded 51-39 by the Aztecs, who jumped to #13 in the AP today. Honestly, with their inside game and defense, they might be better than that. Meanwhile, the Jayhawks slipped another 2 spots to AP #18 at 9-4. KU is the only 4-loss team in the AP top 25. #19 North Carolina lost at Wake Forest and slipped out of the rankings. Oh, and the whole USC/UCLA thing turned out to be not much of a thing: UCLA by THIRTY-FOUR! The coaches in the USA Today poll liked that enough to rank the Bruins at #25. If Trojans coach Andy Enfield thinks they play slow at UCLA, then his team is a lump of molasses in a midwestern winter shitstorm, which should abate tomorrow hereabouts. The shitstorm, not USC's travails. Plenty of travails impending for them starting this weekend, because Arizona is coming to LA for a barnstorming tour: they play at UCLA on Thurs and at USC on Sunday. Ariz will win at least one of their games. Goin out on a limb here, I know. Duke slips out of my top ten. Iowa State slips in at 8. Okla St. and Oregon drop to 9 and 10 with their losses. Huge games in Big10 and Big12 tomorrow: Ohio St/Mich St and Baylor/Iowa St, all top ten teams.
