Big East Basketball Power Rankings (1/18/11)

In my most recent bracketology, 11 Big East teams made the NCAA Tournament projections.  It is not a crazy thought right now especially since nine teams are ranked in the AP Top 25.  Of course, once the season plays out and teams start to beat up on each other, a couple of those teams will struggle and take themselves out of the conversation like happens every year.  Here are my updated power rankings with Pitt holding onto the top spot after winning the battle of unbeatens last night versus Syracuse.

99 in 99: #98 Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Rutgers basketball

The college football season is right around the corner as camps are opening all across the country.  So what better time to start our team-by-team college basketball previews.  Yes, college BASKETBALL.  The season is still well over three months from tipping off but I have a Brett Favre-sized itch and dammit, I am going to scratch it.

I will be ranking the top 99 teams in reverse power ranking order revealing a team per day leading right into the start of the season.  Those 99 teams will be chosen from the 72 power conference teams and top 27 mid-majors.  If you missed the team that received the dubious honor of being 99 out of 99 from yesterday, check it out by clicking here.
