Last Four In: Ole Miss, UCLA, Tulsa, Marquette
First Four Out: Old Dominion, Oregon State, Wichita State, Rhode Island
With non-conference games winding down, the picture is becoming clearer on who's real and who's not as we slowly begin conference play. Connecticut has taken a major fall this season as they drop to their lowest ranking in 16 years with a 6-3 record. Still, I have them making a top 4 seed at the end of the regular season. Kim Mulkey at LSU has already made an impact as the Lady Tigers continue on a ten-game winning streak (11-1) as they begin SEC play late next week. In the Big Ten, Michigan is a little surprising to me. The Wolverines continue to play well and work their way up the poll.
