MRI 2007 - Week 8: Kansas jumps to the front
January 20, 2008 | By Benjamin Miraski
Kansas takes the #1 spot in the MRI because of North Carolina's first loss of the season to Maryland. It shouldn't come as any surprise then that the Jayhawks also had the largest gain of the week to pull into that lead.
North Carolina only drops to #2, followed by consistent #3 Memphis.
However, look out for UCLA who has now moved into the #4 spot, although a clear fourth behind the leaders as they sit right now.
The loser in all this? Xavier.
That was to be expected after a shocking loss to Temple. And this wasn't a slim margin, but 19 points to the Owls, who are 118th in the latest MRI.
Check out all the rankings in Week 8 of the MRI.
