Make some more room on the list of the nation's hottest teams.
Virginia deserves a spot after winning four consecutive ACC games. The Cavaliers pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in ACC history, rallying from a 61-45 deficit to edge Clemson 64-63. The Cavaliers also beat N.C. State 71-58 last week.
A strong case for the hottest team in the nation can also be made for Louisville, which has won 10 of its last 12 games. The Cardinals have won three in a row in the Big East. Louisville is coming off wins over Syracuse (76-71) and Connecticut (68-54).
USC also deserves consideration despite a 65-50 loss at Stanford on Thursday. The Trojans bounced back with a 76-73 win at California for their fifth victory in their last seven games.
We take an in-depth look at the Cavs, Cardinals and Trojans, check out some of the top individual performances and more in A Look Back.
