A lot of talk surrounding GW’s possible ranking tomorrow. Let’s take a look at who lost from the bottom up so everything is laid out in front of us.
No. 14 N.C. State, GW’s sole loss, got beat by an unranked Seton Hall and beat Clemson.
No. 13 West Virginia lost to instate rival and unranked Marshall and beat St. John’s in N.Y.
No. 12 Michigan State lost to an unranked Michigan and beat Penn State.
No. 11 Indiana lost to two unranked teams in Iowa and Minnesota.
No. 10 Pittsburgh won two games to No. 24 Syracuse and Marquette.
No. 9 Washington lost to two unranked teams in California and Stanford.
No. 7s Illinois and Gonzaga took care of business with two wins.
No. 6 Villanova won two games, South Florida and Notre Dame in tight contests.
No. 5 Texas, a team who got a first place vote, beat Oklahoma State but lost to No. 22 Oklahoma.
No. 4 Florida lost last week to Tennessee and followed up this week with a loss to an unranked and weak South Carolina. The Gators also topped Vanderbilt.
The top three teams, Memphis, Duke and Connecticut all won their games.
GW got wins over Duquesne and Rhode Island and should move up a bit, possibly to 11. If the Colonials can pull off a win at Xavier Thursday, a top 10 ranking is very likely.
