Top-line report

Syracuse reacted to its colossally bad two-toned uniforms in predictable fashion, dropping one game that should have been impossible (Boston College) and another that was in many respects inevitable (at Duke). The result is a new race for the No. 1 overall seed between two teams -- Arizona and Florida -- with fairly similar profiles, as well as a clearer path to No. 1 overall for the nation's lone remaining unbeaten team.
