ESPN.com Power Rankings: Feb. 18
Despite another close call, a near home loss to NC State, Syracuse refuses to lose, and the Orange remain our No. 1 team for the third straight week.
Arizona didn't do much to inspire confidence in its double-overtime loss to Arizona State. The Wildcats didn't break the 70-point barrier even though they had 10 extra minutes to do so.
Other big movers up the board include Creighton (for its second drubbing of Villanova) and Wisconsin (which stole a win at Michigan).
Michigan continues to dip, and the Marcus Smart mess has Oklahoma State out of the poll altogether as we barrel toward March.
