It happens every basketball season around this time.
Just when you think you’ve got the NCAA Tournament bubble figured out, a few teams make a run late in the season to be considered.
Some of those teams will prove to be on a hot streak, returning to earth in the coming weeks. Others will go into the conference tournaments ready needing only a game or two to fill the final slots on the bracket.
Our staff wonders who that team could be this season.
Syracuse and Wichita State remain undefeated. Doug McDermott scored a bunch. And Florida handled a couple of SEC teams.
On the surface, the last week was pretty typical as far as the 2013-14 season goes.
But behind all those things we’ve come to accept as automatic this season, there are a few interesting numbers to crunch.
Wichita State is the first to do something in a decade. Syracuse may hit a mark that coincides with the dawn of the Jim Boeheim era. And Florida did something it never has during the Billy Donovan era.
