We're tracking the undefeated teams in DI college basketball this season for as long as they can keep their records perfect.
UConn is the most recent women's team to complete an undefeated season by cutting down the nets, going 38-0 in 2015-16. LSU and Ohio State became the latest undefeated women's teams to fall, losing to No.1 South Carolina 88-64 on Feb. 12 and No. 10 Iowa 83-72 on Jan. 23, respectively. That left South Carolina as the last remaining unbeaten squad in college hoops.
Men's basketball hasn't seen a perfect season since 1975-76 with 32-0 Indiana. There won't be a perfect season in 2022-23 either. New Mexico — the last undefeated men's team in DI — lost to Fresno State, 71-67, on Jan. 3.
Here are the remaining undefeated DI teams this season, along with current records and some guesses at what their toughest games remaining might be. We focused mostly on records to pick the toughest opponents, though it is (of course) far from a sure thing that another team won't jump up and give one of these undefeated teams a first loss.

- South Carolina (29-0, 16-0 SEC)
Toughest tests remaining (on paper): SEC conference tournament
South Carolina knocked off then No. 3 LSU 88-64 in a battle of undefeated teams to move to 25-0, then won its next four gamess to close out the regular season with a perfect record. The Gamecocks breezed through the first part of its schedule, facing trouble only against Stanford and UCLA but still coming out on top. South Carolina remained flawless past the new year this season, surviving UConn 81-77 in a national championship rematch.
The defending champs stayed perfect until Dec. 30 last year when they suffered their only regular season loss pre-conference tournament.
