This title came on the same day Rick Pitino was announced as a member of the latest Hall of Fame class.

The Louisville Cardinals put on a defensive clinic, shutting down Colorado State and dominated the Rams 82-56.
Rick Pitino’s Cardinals take the top spot following losses from Duke & Michigan. Missouri drops to #17 and Illinois hangs on at #23.
