College Basketball Upsets: Ten Ranked Teams Upset on Volatile Saturday

College Basketball Upsets: The first day of March was a bad day to be a ranked team. Of the 17 that played, fans of 10 of them left seriously disappointed.

Of the 16 games that involved ranked teams only one featured two ranked teams (No. 4 Syracuse vs. No. 12 Virginia). The other 15 were all games that the ranked team should have won, but only five of them did (No. 1 Florida, No. 2 Wichita State, No. 19 North Carolina, No. 23 SMU, and No. 16 Michigan).

The losers are as follows:

  • Connecticut did not score in the last 71/2 minutes against No. 11 Cincinnati but still won 51-45. It certainly doesn’t help when your coach has to be restrained from going after a referee (like Cincy’s Mike Cronin).
  • No. 12 Virginia outscored No. 4 Syracuse by 20 in the second half to win 75-56.
  • Oklahoma State looked nothing like a team that lost seven of eight at one stretch beating No. 5 Kansas 72-65.
  • No. 21 Memphis had already beaten No. 7 Louisville once this season making Saturday’s 72-66 win less of a surprise.
  • Xavier used a career day by Justin Martin (19 points, 16 rebounds) to take down No. 9 Creighton 75-69.
  • VCU may have locked up a spot in the field with a 67-56 win over No. 10 Saint Louis.
  • Melvin Ejim and DeAndre Kane couldn’t carry No. 15 Iowa State as they lost 80-73 to Kansas State.
  • South Carolina is at the bottom of the SEC; No. 17 Kentucky is at the top. The Gamecocks controlled the game en route to a 72-67 win.
  • No. 18 Michigan State was at full strength for the first time in a couple months, but the stifling Illinois defense was too much as the upset the Spartans 53-46.
  • No. 24 Texas has been a little inconsistent this season and could do little right against Oklahoma losing 77-65 to the Sooners.

At this point in the season you would think that the top teams in the nation would be hitting their stride as they gear up for their respective conference tournaments as well as the NCAA March Madness Tournament. Some of them are doing just that. Florida looks to remain No. 1 after taking down LSU, and Wichita State finished with the best regular season record in the history of the game, 31-0, after defeating Missouri State.

As for Syracuse, Kentucky, Cincinnati, and a few others the future is not looking as bright as it once did.
