Hottest/Most Improved Teams

In thinking about the UT-KU game on Saturday I wondered if these were the two hottest teams in the country.  I took each team's Pomeroy rankings from four weeks ago (February 8 ) and their current ranking.  I then weeded out all the teams that never really had a shot at a tourney bid (Baylor has moved up from 129 to 95, which is fantastic for them, but I just don't think that's relevant).  The following list is a combination of how many spots a team was moved up, and what % of possible ground they have made up (for example Kansas has only moved up four spots, but I figure its much harder to move up from 6 to 2 than from 66 to 62).  

Team        8-Feb  1-Mar  Diff         %

Texas         39      17      22        45.1%

Maryland     25      11      14        42.7%

Louisville     37      16      21        61.8%

BC              48       31      17        32.4%

Tennessee   51       38      13        33.7%

Va Tech       40       24      16        32.1%

Mich St.       24       13      11        41.6%

Kansas         6         2        4        84.3%

Illinois          33       21       12      31.0%

Syracuse      47       37       10      24.5%
