Davis and Wright close in ACC and Big East

As the season grinds through February, two of my “Group of 7 Coaches” have stayed close in their conference races as Jim Wright and Villanova improved to 19-6 overall and 12-3 in the Big East, and Hubert Davis has his North Carolina team at 18-7 and 10-4 in the ACC. While most of the rest of my watchlist had promising starts, the season has not gone as well in conference play for all as the remaining teams finished the week with at least one loss.
