College Basketball Super Sixteen

After a week that saw two of the top teams in the country, Connecticut and Duke, fall victims to upsets, Jarrod unveils his updated Super Sixteen....

[ Week of December 1 - 7 ]


Kansas Kansas
Become the No. 1 team with an impressive victory over Michigan State, a game in which Wayne Simien dominated, establishing himself as the best offensive post player in the country.
North Carolina North Carolina
Were tested against Cleveland State, but we will find out how good this team really is when they play Illinois on Wednesday.
Connecticut Connecticut
Were embarrassed against Georgia Tech, shooting an ice cold 37%. The good news for Connecticut is that the schedule is cupcake city in the next few weeks.
Texas Texas
Will have another easy week schedule wise to get prepared for their December 9th match up with Arizona. James Thomas will have to make his presence felt in order for Texas to remain this high.
Illinois Illinois
Dee Brown could be the best point guard in the country, watching him go up against Raymond Felton and North Carolina should be very exciting.
Missouri Missouri
Havenít been very impressive on the road in the past couple of seasons, and will be tested this week at Indiana.
Florida Florida
Outgunned Arizona with a stellar game from Matt Walsh, who scored 27 points and hit 5 of 8 from behind the arc. Road gets considerably easier for the Gators in the coming weeks.
Duke Duke
Relied too much on Loul Deng in their loss to Purdue. The kid is good, but heís only played 4 collegiate basketball games and canít be expected to carry the load like that for the remainder of the season.
Arizona Arizona
Only lost by 1 point to a good Florida team despite shooting a dismal 38% from the field. Sophomore Chris Rodgers looked impressive coming off the bench scoring 17 points.
Michigan State Michigan State
Paul Davis showed he can play with the big boys, but it wonít get any easier for the Spartans, as they play both Duke and Oklahoma this week.
Kentucky Kentucky
There are questions about Kentucky regarding their go-to-guy. Gerald Fitch answered some of those questions with his 36 point performance against Tennessee Tech.
Wisconsin Wisconsin
Keeps winning despite the lack of a legitimate offensive threat. Devin Harris has been dismal from the field shooting only 23%, but has been doing damage from the free throw line.
St. Joseph's St. Joseph's
Showed the ability to win close games on the road with the 3 point win at Old Dominion. Delonte West has been a terrific compliment to Jameer Nelson in the backcourt.
Georgia Tech Georgia Tech
Had the most impressive week of any team in the country be beating No. 1 UConn and then turning around and thrashing Texas Tech to win the pre-season NIT.
Wake Forest Wake Forest
Have been getting it done with scoring by committee. Indiana comes to town on Dec. 2nd.
Oklahoma Oklahoma
Drew Lavender continues to impress despite his lack of size. Match-up with Michigan State on Dec. 6th should be a bruising measuring stick for this team.
