NCAAB Power Rankings: February 21

Despite the flurry of upsets in college basketball over the weekend the Power Rankings haven't been shaken up as much as you might think for this week.

Even the Texas Longhorns' big upset loss to Nebraska wasn't enough to knock them off their perch at No. 1. Thanks to their strong defense and solid shooting the Longhorns remain at No. 1 for another week. However, another upset loss like their 70-67 defeat to Nebraska as a 6.5-point chalk and Texas' grip on the top spot will be greatly loosened.

Pardon the pun but the Heat entered the All-Star Break red hot. Miami has won 10 of its last 11 games while also being friendly to the NBA betting crowd at 7-4 ATS. The only blemish on Miami's record was a loss to the Celtics, who the Heat haven't been able to beat this season in three attempts.
