Look at the top 4 teams blindly. All have 3 losses.

Team One
Won 1 game against the current Top 25 (at #12). Lost 3 games (at unranked team, home v.#18 & 19). Played three ranked teams and went 1-2.

Team Two
Won 5 games against the current Top 25
(at #7, at #9, at #22, v.#9, & v.#17). Lost 3 games (at #8, at unranked team, home against an unranked team). Went 5-1 against ranked teams. 3-1 on the road. Did lose to 2 unranked teams.

Team Three
Won 5 games against the current Top 25 (at #5, at #12, at #21, v.#10, v.#18). Lost 3 games (v. unranked team, at #2/v.#2). 5-2 against ranked teams. 3-1 on the road. Only lost to one team outside the top 2 in the country. Lost to the highest ranked team it played twice.

Team Four
Won 5 games against the current Top 25 (at #3, at #22,v.#3, v.#18, v.#21). Lost 3 games (at #5, at #10, at unraked). 5-2 against ranked teams. 2-2 on the road. Lost to at one unranked team. Beat the highest ranked team it played twice.

Rank them with reasons.

After the defeat against Gtown,Uconn really stepped up the loss of Dyson was killer.Every player has to play a little bit above and beyond and if that happens we'll have a great dance!!!!!!!
