Are we sure March didn’t actually start on Saturday?
After a historic day that saw each of the top six teams in the country lose — for the first time in college basketball history — and seven of the top 10 teams in the country lose — also for the first time in college basketball history — we’re headed for a massive reshuffle at the top of the rankings.
Or are we?
Gonzaga is still No. 1. The Zags are still No. 1 in most metrics and they still have eight Quadrant 1 wins. Given that the five teams behind them all lost on the same day, it’s hard to drop them.
