1. Syracuse 15-0
Syracuse is undefeated and Senior Forward C.J. Fair is thriving in Coach Jim Boehim's 2-3 defense. Fair is a Player of the Year dark-horse.
2. Arizona 15-0
Arizona has possibly the most skilled big man in all of College Basketball in Freshman Forward Aaron Gordon and Arizona is off to it's best start in years.
3. Wisconsin 16-0
Wisconsin is off to a hot start but they will be tested when they start playing against the Big Ten's elite.
4. Michigan State 14-1
With a win over Ohio State Michigan State showed that they are legitimate national championship contenders.
5. Wichita State 16-0
Wichita State is showing that last seasons trip to the Final Four was no fluke. They have every chance to repeat that feat this year, and should not be taken lightly just because they are in a weak Conference.
