College Basketball Rankings through 2/28/2010

The computer's college basketball ratings and rankings have been updated on the web-site through games played Sunday the 28th.

With today being the first day of March, we know that March Madness is near so it is interesting to see how teams are positioning themselves in the rankings.  The top-25 are below and there is a little jockeying at the top as Purdue drops after the narrow win over Minnesota and the loss to Michigan State, and that win correspondingly moves Michigan State up 5 spots but so do Texas A&M and Cal.

If the season ended today the computer says the four #1 seeds should be Duke, Kansas, Syracuse, and Kansas State, but most probably have Kentucky, my #5 team as the 4th #1 in lieu of Kansas State.

Look for a more detailed bracket analysis shortly.
