College Hoops Barometer: The Surgical Ward

A topsy-turvy last week saw losses by several highly-ranked squads, including Villanova, Arizona State, North Carolina and Miami. Meanwhile, TCU is no longer undefeated after suffering a narrow loss at the hands of Oklahoma freshman sensation Trae Young. With that loss as well as Butlerís defeat of the aforementioned Wildcats, all the undefeated teams in college basketball have now fallen by the wayside. Michigan State has assumed the position at the pinnacle of the rankings.

One of the more surprising starts to the season belongs to the Xavier Musketeers, who have reeled off 10 wins in a row. Led by senior Trevon Bluiett, who has improved each and every season, the 14-1 Musketeers have only lost to an extremely talented Arizona State squad that is also currently ranked in the top 5. A January 10th clash with 1-loss Villanova should be a terrific matchup and will go a long way towards determining whether or not the Musketeers are true contenders.
