I'm Brian Webber welcome to who -- Gary am pleased to be John -- college basketball analyst John Crist and counting down. Your top five teams right now subject to change -- -- -- number five well first off I would love. As the Baylor Bears I've been going with them all year sinners I've given them every chance but they've lost every time I picked them summer start with -- Ohio State and you may. Have a problem with -- because you -- it is the best team in that conference but Ohio State is a team that I think should you know they were there in the beginning. And they're going to be there in the -- the loss fog Allen field house. Without. -- -- -- I -- I don't even did a discount that lost the other ones are Big Ten losses. You're playing against teams that are very familiar with you the very familiar with the style of play. And a familiar with -- with each individual. I think it's hard to win on the road in the Big Ten and those of the issues that Ohio State has had. But I think it's a team that's very deep they have good guards and Aaron craft it was Buford and mr. do all that he received -- -- who really emerged as. Keep -- top five so it's a bald -- felt like. Creative thinking I mean really up for lots -- Big twelve has a couple marquee team studio number four while gonna go with Kansas and in Kansas might be plain as well as anybody in the country right now you look at. Kind of the two headed mark or with Thomas Robinson. And -- Tyson Taylor starts on Taylor again we talked about him. And musicians you know for the first 23 years he's at Kansas but really into his -- has emerged as the start of this team scoring the basketball. Really kind of coming off that to position where Liza Johnson has taken over as a point guard creator -- -- Taylor is the swore that we thought he would be. But it but it really has to come down Thomas Roberts Thomas Robinson. We're gonna talk about him as a potential player of the year. And I would say he should get it as physical as physically dominating as we've seen anyone being college basketball in many many years so. I look for them to finish strong and it's going to be big matchup February 25 Missouri Kansas. Can be go with a long want to -- the reasoning which they you have their number three and they've already beaten cancer is this year. Yeah I and you know I've -- I've I've counted Missouri out all year and I think I've I feel badly about that at this point because it's a new coach. You know how do you have chemistry with the new coach frank -- Coming into this team we knew they had talent but they're undersized you know it's an undersized team. But similar to the Marquette. They played at full assault. Defense they get up that you but it's that it's the chemistry and even the players on the team we're talking about the type of chemistry they have as -- team -- he got to give the credit to frank it. I don't know how you come in. As a first year head coach and turn this program around and get them all fired on on all cylinders all you know. In the same direction. So give coach frank -- a lot of credit for this although there are some good start. Kim English hmm I market than men are doing a great job there hazard. Number two at Syracuse on an ugly orange look like a complete team do you think they have any major weakness I was funny I would say they're with their major weakness is also there they're. Biggest asset. They play with one big and fab Melo and he's -- -- -- The first time we've seen. True big at Syracuse we have those who have always had taught let it long guys that zone. But this is a guide has you all the way down in the post offense and defense. It allows the four guard lineup that they play with just dropped me Chris -- scoop Jardine and Brandon Trish. I mean these guys are doing a lot to really extend the ball on offense. They're a long long defense which that zone. Needs you need long guards you have a guy like -- know that can. He brings up around the basket. I think they're gonna struggle in the big east tournament look to them to win out. We got to remember fab Melo didn't play against Notre Dame and their only loss of the season. I expect your keys to win out and maybe lose in the big east tournament because big east teams will get comfortable with the zone they played him twice already. And I think you see hot shooting teams may be knocking out of the big east tournament -- still definitely a one seed in the NCA. Finally not much doubt about who's number one unless you wanna go pulling out a boxer not the first day. I -- this this Kentucky team this has been unbelievable and we talk about coach cal what he does. Not only to get these players here but didn't get them to play his way. I mean so many stars and I give him the biggest credit for really. Making Terrence Jones. Take a step back. And we thought he was gonna be the veteran leader on the young team. But he is allow these young guards to just take over and then just arrive around the play of if we gave Anthony Davis coming in with about five blocks a game. And he can get a triple double and nine point point two rebounds and blocked shots and he's that dominant now we're talking before this I mean. I don't think we've seen a player as dominant as it gives on the defense side and media Patrick Ewing Alonzo Mourning. -- Mutombo who just use their athleticism and length to dominate on defense side of the ball and that came up against that Florida game where they just dominated. Right up we appreciate the -- that's gonna do for this edition of who is -- don't forget. Foxsports.com. That you've covered fully college basketball needs for jumpers but I'm Bryan Webber will he next time.
