Saturday featured a ton of exciting college basketball matchups during the course of the day. Several teams got big-time wins while others picked up head-scratching losses. That means we saw a lot of movement in today’s updated Top 25 & 1 from CBS Sports.
Arizona was the biggest riser after a win over Indiana while Illinois dropped again after a frustrating defeat to Penn State. However, Alabama was the weekend’s biggest winner after making history in their victory at Houston.

Alabama went into the Fertitta Center on Saturday evening and came back from 15 down to defeat the top-ranked and then-undefeated Cougars. They did so without a strong showing from five-star freshman Brandon Miller, who shot 0-8 on the day. It wasn’t just a big win for the Tide but it was a historic one too as it’s only the second time a team has beaten two No. 1 squads before the turn of the year
As for Arizona, they handed the Hoosiers their second loss following this 14-point victory in the Las Vegas Clash. Azuolas Tubelis led four Wildcat starters who scored double-digit points during the win. Arizona shot 49.2% from the field and outrebounded Indiana by 10 to get their eighth overall victory of the year.
In Illinois’ case, they had their head coach Brad Underwood fuming mad following their losing effort against the Nittany Lions in Champaign. They bounced back after a loss to Maryland with a very impressive win over Texas. They followed that with this uninspiring performance, though, that was a culmination of a bad few days for the team according to Underwood.

There’s a lot of time left to either double down on these big moments or correct these mistakes. CBS’ next update will almost certainly reflect that. With that said, these outcomes, good or dreadful as they may be, are just as important as the end of the season as each of these teams works their way toward conference play.
It's amazing the difference in schedule so far between Bama and AU. We've already played 5 to 20 teams including 2 #1 teams. The closest they've come is Memphis and they lost. Hopefully so far will be a confidence builder and not an Big-Head-Syndrome :cool:
The first time we were ranked number 1 in the country, if memory serves, we went out and laid some major eggs during the Mark Gottfried era
Is crashed and burned equal to, less than, or greater than "laid some major eggs."

As I recall, next week will mark 20 years since that ranking. And, as I recall, they basically played .500 ball the rest of the season.
