The Associated Press No. 1 team in men's college basketball has lost six times this season, with Thursday night's Illinois stunner of Indiana marking the fifth straight week in which the best team has fallen. We won't rag on the Hoosiers too much, although both times they've lost as a No. 1 team it's been to unranked squads. It's interesting to imagine what effect this will have on the NCAA tournament -- a 1-seed has never lost to a 16-seed, but if it were to happen, this year's as good as any.

Unranked surprise?

Neither of its losses as No. 1 has to sit well with Indiana. Both were incredibly close, with the Butler loss coming in overtime.

Which Indiana loss to an unranked team while it was ranked No. 1 was more surprising?
