7 of the remaining teams are/have been in his top 10 rankings

An additional 5 are/have been ranked between 11 and 20

The remaining 4 (or the complete sweet 16) are/have been ranked between 21 and 30.

This, in my opinion, validates Ken Pomeroy's statistical analysis and rankings, at least for this year.

All the national ranking were about the same....most all missed on Duke, Nova and Louisville (if you call that a miss) and had the other 7 in their top ten.. ....

My monkey with his darts was just as good...

The number crunchers were no better than the eye ballers .... except that perhaps the eye ballers (coaches) checked on the numbers before voting...
