Dave2015Well, that was a wild Saturday!  We had some impressive victories – none more than Virginia Tech win at Virginia.  We also had some head-scratching losses – Providence dropping a home game to DePaul by double-digits?

One could spend hours trudging through the full, madness-filled day that was Saturday.  But this is Quick Takes, so here are a few of the most notable takeaways through the prism of winners and losers …

Saturday’s winners:

  • Virginia Tech’s win at Virginia tops the list.
  • Texas AM – watch out for the Aggies who appear to have righted their previously wayward ship.  They’ve won four straight after beating Kentucky on Saturday, which came after a win at Auburn.
  • North Carolina – took care of NC State on the road after beating Duke; thus, avoiding a let-down.
  • Michigan State – by beating Purdue, the Spartans are back in the Big Ten race.  They’ve also positioned themselves to be in the conversation for a top-two seed on Selection Sunday if they close with a flurry.
  • Oklahoma State and Baylor – the Cowboys won at West Virginia; Baylor beat Kansas. Both are back into the bubble picture again.
  • Gonzaga – exacted revenge by going on the road to beat Saint Mary’s.
