After 12 of the top 25 teams lost to someone ranked lower or the majority of them lost to an unranked, the Bucks should be glad to pull out the 1 point win at NW. Duke got manhandled against a maybe top 40 club yesterday. Can't say I wasn't happy!

Yep. Basketball is tough to play at the highest level, day in and day out. Undefeated in football is a much easier task than in basketball.

I suppose we all know Indiana in the 70's was the last team to run the table. UNLV almost did it in '91 with a ridiculously talented team. They were 34-0 and somehow lost to a scrappy Duke in the Final Four.

It's just a crazy fluke if it happens. There is an element of luck in all close college basketball games. Let's hope the Buckeyes keep the luck, the composure, the health and the energy and team spirit which has taken them this far!

Chances are, the Bucks will not go undefeated.....a very difficult accomplishment as evidenced by the fact it hasn't happened for what.....36 years? Aside from winning the Big Ten, a number one seed is the goal at hand.
