Syracuse vaults to No. 11 in Power 24
The latest Power 24 is now updated here at Bracketville. Welcome to the Syracuse Orangemen who vault to No. 11 after a stellar run through Madison Square Garden – beating Ohio State and North Carolina. We also welcome Gonzaga (No. 21) after a tough showing in East Lansing. This week, they’re in Maui. Not a lot of changes at the top … Kansas remains No. 1, followed by Michigan State and Texas. The two teams just missing this week: Mississippi State (after losing at home to Rider – and some overall uncertainty) and Oklahoma (losing at VCU). As a side note, UNC falls only a little – to No. 7. As the new guards learn how to take advantage of Carolina’s front line, look for the Heels to be a force. Let’s don’t overreact to a single win or loss.
Obviously, the Power 24 becomes more accurate as the season progresses. There will also be less manuevering. Check back for weekly updates. And as always, send a rebound!
