From ESPN’s Daily Quickie:

The Lead Item

Is Duke overrated at No. 1?Halfway through college basketball’s non-conference schedule, there’s enough data to scan the latest Top 25 and figure out who’s underrated and who’s overrated.
(Inertia from preseason rankings annoys me to no end. For solid data points, I give credit based on who teams have actually beaten this season.)

Villanova (Rank: 4). As far as I’m concerned, they have the biggest “prove-it” win of the season: Beating then-No. 5 Oklahoma on Saturday. And that’s without injured star forward Curtis Sumpter. They should be No. 1, at least this week.
