Only two of the conference's teams are in this week's rankings, but several others are close by. Selection Sunday could be very interesting.
- Baylor again atop AP poll in week of rare stability
- New No. 1 Baylor focused on finishing that way
- Baylor jumps Zags to take top spot in AP Top 25
- Baylor jumps to No. 2 in AP poll after road wins
Kentucky got a big road win in OT over Texas Tech, Baylor handled Florida with ease, and Illinois finds itself atop the crowded Big Ten.
MaCio Teague and Devonte Bandoo scored 16 points apiece and No. 1 Baylor extended its winning steak to 16 with a 72-61 victory over Florida in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday night.
The Big 12 and SEC will engage in their annual fight for bragging rights -- and NCAA tournament position -- in Saturday's daylong extravaganza.
A steal and a block with the game well in hand for Kansas sparked the brawl that ensued as time expired.
Seth Greenberg and Dan Dakich tip off the podcast with Baylor head coach Scott Drew to talk about what he said to his team when they came in at No. 1 in the AP Top 25, how the players reacted (7:29), how he's keeping his team focused ahead of playing Florida, what he thought of the program when he took over 17 years ago, why he loves Seth and Dan (16:25), and the team's tribute to the Immortal Ten. Later, the guys discuss Butler losing two in a row (21:10), Kentucky rallying after John Calipari was tossed at Arkansas, if Cole Anthony will play again in college (29:10), and Mike Krzyzewski complaining about freedom of movement (36:38).
Obi Toppin, Udoka Azubuike and Markus Howard are among and the standout players who keep coaches up at night.
Baylor edged Oklahoma 61-57 hours after becoming the seventh team in the nation to reach No. 1 in the AP poll this season.
MaCio Teague had 16 points, fellow transfer Davion Mitchell had 13 and Baylor held on to win its first-ever home game as the No. 1 team, beating Oklahoma 61-57 on Monday night.
Baylor and Gonzaga were the only two teams in the top five that took care of business last week.
The Blue Devils had won nine in a row, but they dropped out of the Power Rankings' top 10 after losing to Clemson and Louisville.
Jared Butler scored 19 points and had six assists Saturday, helping No. 2 Baylor rally past Oklahoma State 75-68 for the Bears' 14th straight victory. Oklahoma State has lost five in a row.
With less than two months remaining until Selection Sunday, the No. 1 line is simpler than projecting the rest of the field.
