Who's Got the Power?
As the second half of the college basketball season begins, Sports Illustrated senior writer Luke Winn breaks down the nation's top teams with his weekly power rankings. Topping the list is No. 1 Arizona (16--0), which, despite opening the season with its scoring attack largely in the hands of junior two guard Nick Johnson, now has the most balanced offense in the country, with sophomore forward Brandon Ashley emerging as a efficient scorer. Meanwhile, No. 2 Syracuse, led by senior forward C.J. Fair, has used multiple offensive options to get off to a 14--0 start. Go to SI.com/cbb for Winn's complete rankings.

SI SPECIAL REPORT
Four months ago Italian tennis sensation Camila Giorgi, then 136th in the world, was riding high off her upset of former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in the third round of the U.S. Open. However, while the then 21-year-old was putting the WTA tour on notice on the court, Giorgi (now ranked 97) and her father, Sergio, were also making names for themselves off the court, allegedly amassing tens of thousands of dollars in debt to would-be private sponsors. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED executive editor L. Jon Wertheim takes a look at Giorgi's rise and her family's questionable business dealings. Go to SI.com/tennis

Although I had no problem winning championships and leading UCLA to the No. 1 spot in the country, homesickness, media scrutiny and racism almost impelled me to quit school.
