Villanova surpasses Providence in projected college basketball standings after Kansas is stunned by TCU.
Kansas headed on the road to face TCU, who appeared to be an easy opponent, but ended up losing. After the Jayhawks’ loss, projected college basketball rankings.
Despite the fact that several top-10 teams were in action on Tuesday night, the college basketball rankings were not expected to change much. With Villanova and Providence playing each other, there may be some shuffling. The TCU Horned Frogs, on the other hand, had different ideas when the Kansas Jayhawks came to town.
The Jayhawks, who were ranked No. 6 in the country following a weekend setback to Baylor — one of many top-ranked teams to lose on a historic Saturday of upsets — traveled to Fort Worth to try to get back on track. Rather, the wheels began to come off even more.
It’s one thing to lose to Baylor, another highly ranked team. But Kansas looked absolutely out of sorts against a TCU club that they should have beaten ten times out of ten, regardless of whether the game was played at home or on the road.
Bill Self’s side came up short despite a late comeback try and now has lost back-to-back games. Will they be knocked out of the top ten college basketball polls? It’s time to double-check our forecasts.

Kansas narrowly avoids dropping out of the top ten by landing in the tenth slot. Still, it’s difficult to believe their stock didn’t take a hit at an inopportune time.
The NCAA Tournament is almost around the corner, and the Jayhawks could’ve made a case for one of the No. 1 seeds in March Madness with their string of victories to conclude the regular season. Instead, they’re disintegrating and losing games they shouldn’t be losing at an inopportune moment.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens after that, with the Big 12 Tournament looming large for Rock Chalk.
