I'm not ready to put faith in any team given how this season is going.
But know this: Connecticut is positioned to stay No. 1 for a while.
The Huskies' win at Louisville on Monday night improved Jim Calhoun's team to 21-1 overall, 10-1 in the Big East. More to the point, it allowed them to clear one of their final road hurdles, and now they won't play another tough road game until Feb. 25 at Marquette.
Four of UConn's next five games are at home.
Only two of those games are against ranked opponents.
So the guess here is that UConn will keep its No. 1 ranking longer than Duke kept its.
Which, of course, means the Huskies are destined to lose at home to Michigan on Saturday, just because.
