The No. 1 team loses. Stop me if you heard this one before ...
No. 1 goes down again, for the fifth week in a row, and the top of the bracket is in scramble mode.
Both teams are relative home court heroes, which is why I don't have them as high on my S-Curve as voters have them in the polls. I'm sure that won't change this week.
Did I mention the No. 5 team in the polls also lost? After having their 33-game home winning streak broken over the weekend, Kansas took out its frustrations on TCU's rims by heaving brick after brick at them in a historically embarrassing loss Wednesday to the Frogs.
In terms of RPI ratings, TCU's win over the Jayhawks was the biggest upset in the 20 years I have been tracking RPI data. I have read that it's not nearly as historic as measured by point spreads.
Kansas dropped two lines down to a 3-seed after the loss.
Speaking of the Missouri Valley, on the way back up is Team Schizophrenia, Indiana State. The Sycamores pounded Creighton at home for its fourth win over a tournament quality team. They need wins like that to make up for their four bad losses. ISU played a good non-conference schedule, and if it can find some consistency, should get rewarded for its efforts.
