UNC still on top; Gonzaga jumps to No. 4

Publish date:

About that Final Four-site test run last night in Detroit: When the real thing happens, I assume North Carolina's challengers will be better prepared than Michigan State was. But does that mean UNC's semifinal and title-game foes will only lose by 15, instead of 35? (Records through December 4)

On the cusp: Louisville, UCLA, Marquette, Memphis (all four in upset purgatory ... and all four will probably be back in the big kids' section soon), Wisconsin, Georgetown, Purdue, Butler, Baylor, Arizona State, St. Mary's, Kansas, Michigan State and all the other teams you were considering sending e-mails about to point out our total lack of respect for the program.(If you still feel like sending e-mail, I'm here.)
