The article presents information on developments related to college basketball in the U.S. Readers are only about 10 days from the Ratings Percentage Index numbers really starting to mean something, and the Missouri Valley Conference still has more teams in the top 30 than the SEC, Pac-10 or Big 12. It looks like the Valley teams have cracked the code. The Indiana league has Michigan State's Paul Davis and Maurice Ager, Ohio State's Terence Dials, Wisconsin's Alando Tucker and Illinois' Dee Brown.
