College Hoops 101

By: David Kay

College Hoops 101 is a weekly article centering around all things college basketball.  I  look back at the previous week, glance forward to what is ahead in the up-coming days, and keep track of how many games I have watched this season in hopes of topping my mark from a year ago (274.)

In this week’s edition ‘Cuse is the new #1, Purdue suffers a huge loss, it’s bubble watch week, and is Notre Dame better without Luke Harangody?

Big East Power Rankings

By: David Kay

1. Syracuse: 13-2, 26-2 (LWR: 1)
I love Andy Rautins.  There I said it.  Judge me, I don’t even care.  He honestly deserves to be in All-American consideration.  I am not drunk.  He is the calming force for this ‘Cuse team and does everything on the floor.  By the way, words cannot describe how excited I am for the ‘Nova-‘Cuse game Saturday night.  We’re talking as excited as a 12-year old girl seeing a naked lady for the first time.

Up Next: vs. Villanova (Sat), vs. St. John’s (Tues)

Big East Power Rankings 2-19

1. Syracuse: 12-2, 25-2 (LWR: 1)

Kris Jospeh is league.  Best sixth man in college basketball.  He absolutely came up huge in their win against Georgetown.  The loss at home to Louisville is still a bit of a head-scratcher.

Up Next: at Providence (Tues)

Big East Basketball Power Rankings 2-12-10

By: David Kay

1. Syracuse: 11-1, 24-1 (Last Week Ranking: 2)
‘Cuse has rattled off 11 wins in a row.  While Wesley Johnson gets most the hype as a future NBA’er and possible All-American selection, Andy Rautins is really the most valuable player on this team.  His leadership, three-point shooting, defensive ability, and versatility are key to the Orange’s success.  When he was forced to the bench against UConn because of foul trouble, the Huskies were able to get back into the game.  Rautins is the perfect example of a glue guy.

Up Next: vs. Louisville (Sun), at Georgetown (Thur)
