College basketball this season has been truly insane this season. Although only five teams have held the number one spot this year (Indiana, Duke, Michigan, Louisville, and Gonzaga), the number one team has been upset 8 times this year. The Indiana Hoosiers at 25-4 have suffered three of those eight losses. This week, Gonzaga tops the AP list as the number one team in the nation at 29-2. With Selection Sunday coming soon, there is no clear cut favorite heading into the tournament. Indiana appeared to be the favorite to win the tournament, but its ability to lose close games causes some speculation. The only other team to hold the number one spot longer than a week other than Indiana has been Duke, but Duke’s inconsistencies can be worrisome as well. If we have learned anything from this season, it’s that the number one ranking is not the place to be.
