Three weeks ago North Carolina tumbled out of the seedings. This week Kansas, which lost three of four before beating Texas Tech last Saturday, becomes the latest power to fall. Looks like a tough year for Dean Smith disciples, doesn't it?
The shocking news of the week is the emergence of three teams from Oklahoma. Oklahoma State rolled on with wins over Big 12 bottom-feeders Texas Tech and Texas A&M; Tulsa, by virtue of convincing wins over SMU and TCU, returned as a fourth seed after a week's absence; and Oklahoma vaulted into the seedings for the first time thanks to an 83-59 pasting of Texas. Will all three teams from Oklahoma still be there when the season ends? We'd sooner not hazard a guess.
