College basketball will have a new No. 1 team today as Syracuse’s luck ran out — twice — last week.
Florida has as strong a case as any team, turning in another complete performance in a 75-71 win at Ole Miss, the Gators’ 19th victory in a row. Meanwhile, the nation’s lone undefeated team still has plenty of reason to feel underappreciated despite its unblemished record. Wichita State thrashed Drake 83-54 and remains two games away from going to the Missouri Valley Tournament undefeated.
