I really think the top 8 are starting to make themselves clear. Kentucky has put some distance between them and UNC for that last spot on the 2 line. Purdue, who the analytics love, got a huge win against Michigan State who is playing really good basketball. Washington is starting to climb the rankings as well getting to road wins in the state of Oregon last week. The bottom of the bubble is just ugly. No one is doing anything to separate themselves. Temple, Arizona, Arizona State, Florida, UCF, Butler, Alabama, Baylor (might be playing the best of the bunch after a bad start to the year), Seton Hall and Minnesota are all so close, and non of them have a resume that stand out.
