After top-ranked Indiana's loss at Minnesota earlier this week, Gonzaga is now in line to take over the No. 1 ranking next week. Last night, the second ranked Bulldogs extended their winning streak to 11 games with a hard fought 70-to-65 road win over BYU. Before Gonzaga can leap to the top of the polls, the Bulldogs have to beat Portland at home on Saturday, which would wrap up their conference slate with a perfect record.
And a season of upsets rolled on last night as unranked Virginia knocked off number-3 Duke 73-to-68. Now we wait for Sunday afternoon when Michigan State plays at Michigan to see which team can keep their slipping chances alive for a Big Ten regular season title. Tip-off is 4 pm.
