SU (10-0) earned the top spot in the latest Big East Conference Power Rankings. UConn (8-0) ranked second.
"I founded a blog called "TheUConnBlog" for a reason, and that reason was not to write good things about Syracuse," wrote Andrew Porter about the results. "But yet, I must, because the Orange have been the most convincing team in the conference so far. As a result, they're No. 1 this week, leapfrogging my beloved Huskies."
Porter admits that last Tuesday's win against Michigan State was impressive.
Umm. Did you forget the 100-43 beatdown against Upstate New York "rival" Colgate? You're killing me, Porter!
The World Wide Leader In Sports agreed with the writers of SB Nation, ranking Syracuse (No. 5) ahead of UConn (7) in its latest Top-25 power rankings on Thursday, Dec. 9.
On Tuesday, FOX Sports had different results when college basketball expert Jeff Goodman had the Huskies (5) above the Orange (7) in a ranking of the Top 25 squad.
Goodman is still hanging on UConn's performance in the Maui Invitational, Nov. 22-24, which featured Top-10 victories over the Michigan State Spartans and Kentucky Wildcats.
As for the other two SB Nation New York college hoops teams.
