Bracketology 101's "Best Week, Worst Week"

In this weekly feature, we rank the five teams, players, conferences, etc. that had the best week, as well as those that had a week they would like to forget.

Five Best Weeks

Adam Morrison
Banks are apparently open late Saturdays in Oregon. What a shot.

J.J. Redick
There have been a few 40-plus point performances in college basketball this year, but considering the competition and hype, no performance was as good as Redick's. By the way...who wins in a game of H-O-R-S-E? Redick or Morrison? Is there a way to arrange this?

Temple
The Owls won at Princeton and at home against Alabama to help pad their non-conference resume. With games against Duke, Villanova, and Maryland left on the schedule, Temple's RPI will have them in the conversation come Selection Sunday.

Notre Dame
The Irish bounced back from a loss at Michigan by winning a tough one at Alabama and then crushing Florida International With a cupcake-filled schedule coming up, ND will have a nice-looking record as they open conference play.

Ohio State
On Thursday night, Buckeye-bound Greg Oden put up 23 points, 17 rebounds and nine blocks in a nationally televised high school game. On Saturday, his future teammates went on the road and won at St. Joseph's, earning them a spot in the latest ESPN/USA Today poll. Not a bad couple of days for The Ohio State University...and just wait 'til next year.

Five Worst Weeks
Kentucky
After finding out that they will be without Randolph Morris for the rest of the season, they went out and got pounded by an Indiana team that had just lost to Indiana State. It doesn't get any easier this week with Louisville coming in.

Alabama
First a desperate Notre Dame team comes to their home court and beats them, and then they lose over the weekend to Temple.

Boston College
This was supposed to be the week that BC was worthy of its top 10 ranking. Instead, they went out and lost Michigan State and to Maryland in their first ACC game.

Iowa
A real tough week to be a Hawkeye fan. Not only did they lose to Northern Iowa early in the week, they then went out and lost to Iowa State over the weekend. Granted, both games were on the road to teams that were in our pre-season bracket, but most though they should win at least one of these games.

Oklahoma State
I wonder how much the Cowboys ended up paying Northwestern State to come into Stillwater and beat them. Then they traveled up to Seattle to have their hearts ripped out by Adam Morrison.

The Cowboys vs. Zags game was so sad. I'm from Stillwater and am a die hard Pokes fan, and to watch Morrison hit that shot killed me! However I did see some things that encouraged me about OSU, and I believe that they will upset some teams come conference play, so watch out OU, Texas, and everyone else in the Big 12. I would also like to add that I believe that Morrison should be the Player of the Year, and harbor no hard feelings against him, because he was just doing what he does best.
