    I would not count on it.

    Tennessee plays #3 UConn this week and still has #1 South Carolina, #10 Mississippi St, #15 Texas A&M, #21 Arkansas plus two games (home and home) against a good LSU team and a decent Vanderbilt team. If they can win 80% or more of these games I would give them a Top-16 seed, but don't hold your breath.

    Not a big day for Top-25 games but the ranked teams are having a difficult time so far.

    At halftime, #2 Baylor is only leading unranked TCU in Fort Worth 30-26. Come On Frogs.

    Nearing the end the 3rd quarter, #25 West Virginia is losing to unranked Oklahoma State 38-33. Go Cowboys.

    Wow! Baylor apparently isn't quite invulnerable after all. They did lose a key player to injury--NaLyssa Smith.

    I think parity has arrived big time this year.

    West Virginia lost, but Baylor won. TCU was up 1 at end of Q3, but BU won by 9. Outside of the Bears the Big 12 is just full of mediocrity.

    It's really early, but UConn is looking bad. Tennessee up 10-4. UConn has a starter (Irwin) that I don't think would crack the rotation at GU. She's definitely a weak link for them.

    Tennessee was up by as much as 8. Should've had a bigger lead. Vols up 31-28 at halftime. Neither team looks anywhere close to elite to me. These were once the top 2 teams in WCBB by a humongous margin. Not so anymore.

    Q3 has been all UConn. Tennessee has 22 TOs w/ 12 minutes left in the game, just terrible ball management. I think the best player in the game has been little used Fr. Aubrey Griffin, Geno should wise up and start her and bench Irwin the rest of the season.

    Barring a miracle, UConn is gonna win by double digits while barely shooting over 30% from the floor. Tennessee w/ 26 TOs now, they have been absolutely awful in the 2nd half. I really don't see much difference between the Vols under Coach Warlick vs. Coach Harper. Ugly ugly game. UConn's Big 3 are a combined 13-49 shooting.

    UConn wins 60-45. Stinker of a game.

    Arkansas about to lose at home to Georgia. Hopefully that means 2 overrated SEC teams will drop out of next week's poll.

    Big slate of Pac 12 games w/ ranked teams. Arizona St. @ Arizona earlier than the rest. ASU...they are just so hard to watch, they make everything so ugly. Leading 23-20 at halftime.

    #11 DePaul up 9 at halftime against Villanova.

    #24 South Dakota is just demolishing Purdue-Ft. Wayne 52-10 at the half. I think USD is a really good team, and the Summit League is pretty awful overall.

    This game is nerve wracking. I can't stand ASU. Arizona up 48-42 w/ 2 minutes left.

    Arizona was up 10 w/ momentum w/ about 2 minutes left, thought they had it in the bag. ASU won't go away. 4 point game w/ 16 seconds left.

    #4 Oregon up 7 at the end of the 1st quarter over #7 Oregon State - 25-18
    Colorado up big over #6 Stanford at the end of the 1st quarter - 21 - 13
    Huskies starting out strong over #10 UCLA 22 - 11 near the end of the 1st quarter.

    Let's see if the ranked teams can turn it around in quarter #2.

    OSU went from being one of the best 3 point shooting teams in the country to can't buy a bucket. Kinda turned south last January when Tudor got hurt. She's back but she's not the same. No injury but something is not right w/ Goodman, she's been invisible since Thanksgiving. They started out up 10-2 but they might get run off the floor. Ducks up 10 now.

    UW will choke. They've coughed up double digit leads several times this year. They can't sustain any kind of momentum (Coach Wynn needs to go, it ain't working).

    Halftimes:

    #4 Oregon running away from #7 Oregon State - 45 - 29
    #6 Stanford has not found their offense yet (27 points at half) but held Colorado to 4 pts in the 2nd quarter. Cardinal lead at halftime - 27 - 25
    Huskies playing strong, leading over #10 UCLA 35 - 25 at halftime.

    Washington St. in a battle, down 4 in Q3 @ USC. Trojans near the bottom of the conference but any road win is good.

    And UW loses a double digit lead. Again. They have to be one of the worst 2nd half teams in the country.
