Marquette, Xavier, Creighton and Gonzaga...the fixins of a nice tournament;)

I'd say those rankings are quite fair. This team certainly has the potential to be a top 10 or so team, but they've got a ways to go to get there.

Not a big Illinois fan, but that team certainly belongs in the rankings. Not sure how long it can stay there given the strength of its conference. The good thing for Illinois is that it is a team with a lot of potential for improvement through the season and a chance for a deep run in the tournament in March (ala Gonzaga).
