We have one more week of sporadic scheduling between the tips of the bell curve teams.  Then we'll let the curtain fall on the non conference season and really start to figure out some of these conference races.  A quick recap of what we've seen thus far:

Undefeated teams (4): Villanova, Miami, Arizona State, and TCU.

Winless (against Division I) teams (20): Chicago State, Delaware State, Alabama State, Alabama A&M, Mississippi Valley State, Florida A&M, Alcorn State, Coppin State, Arkansas Pine Bluff, Longwood, Howard, Youngstown State, Norfolk State, McNeese State, Texas Southern, Cal State Northridge, Sacramento State, New Orleans, Loyola Maryland, and Texas A&M Corpus Christi. 

Quadrant 1 Wins:
(4)- North Carolina, Villanova
(3)- Arizona State, West Virginia, Missouri, Temple, Kansas, Alabama
(2)- Purdue, Arizona, Minnesota, Iowa State, Texas, Tennessee, Seton Hall, Gonzaga, Florida, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma.
