College basketball rankings: Kansas extends winning streak to 16 games and remains No. 1 in the Top 25 And 1

Selection Sunday is still a week away. A lot will happen between now and then. But, at this point, it’s hard to envision a scenario where Kansas is anything other than the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.

“That’s the best Kansas team I’ve seen,” Texas Tech coach Chris Beard told reporters after the Jayhawks beat his Red Raiders, 66-62, on Saturday to secure the outright Big 12 title. “[Devon] Dotson [is] the best guard in college basketball, [Udoka Azubuike is] the best big in college basketball, [Marcus] Garrett is the best defender in college basketball, and their role players just don’t make mistakes.”

That’s high praise.

And KU has the resume to back it up.

The Jayhawks are now 28-3 with 12 Quadrant 1 victories and zero losses outside of the first quadrant. Put simply, nobody else can touch the body of work that belongs to the outright Big 12 champs. So Kansas is No. 1 in Sunday morning’s CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 daily college basketball rankings. And when you realize it’s impossible for the Jayhawks to do much damage to their resume even with a loss in their first game of the Big 12 Tournament, it’s a safe bet that KU will be the No. 1 overall seed on Selection Sunday.
