American University LogoKalonKral's Ballot for Week 15 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, February 11, 2019 at 7:44AM EST
1 Duke University Logo Duke 0 Maybe I won’t be in the small minority anymore with Duke at No. 1. Welcome to all!
2 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee +1 All their tough SEC games come at the end of the year. Test #1: At Kentucky on Saturday.
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia -1 They’ve only lost to Duke, but no rest for the wicked with UNC on the horizon.
4 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga 0 They continue smashing everyone in the WCC. Losing Tillie probably won’t even matter.
5 University of Michigan Logo Michigan 0 A very nice revenge win over Wisconsin.
6 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky 0 I really love how nicely this team has come together.
7 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina 0 They survived a tough test from Miami. The power of the ‘fro returns to help Coby White.
8 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada 0 Only a couple tests left on the schedule for Nevada. At least they got that loss out of the way – in spectacular fashion.
9 University of Houston Logo Houston +5 Two great wins over UCF and Cincinnati. Really like how Jarreau has given them a spark off the bench.
10 Marquette University Logo Marquette -1 Yes, they lost to St. John’s (kryptonite), but monster win over Villanova is more important.
11 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State 0 Illinois seems to be on a hot streak. I wish I could move them down, but it’s not deserved yet.
12 Purdue University Logo Purdue +3 I think Purdue is right there now with Michigan St. Should be a fun race with a non-Michigan team in the mix.
13 Louisiana State University Logo LSU +5 Two great wins over Mississippi St. and Auburn. They almost fell apart at the end against Auburn though.
14 Villanova University Logo Villanova -2 There’s really no shame in losing to Marquette. But what a terrible last possession.
15 University of Kansas Logo Kansas -2 This team is really in a freefall, but, man, have they found something with Agbaji or what?
16 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech -6 Missing Justin Robinson really hurts right now … though we’ll discount these L’s come tourney time.
17 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin -1 Played Michigan tough again, just didn’t come out on the winning side.
18 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State +7 They’re starting to hit their stride now, after some midseason woes. Plus, gif war!
19 University of Iowa Logo Iowa +3 Amazing comeback over Northwestern, showing this team can gut out some tough wins.
20 University of Louisville Logo Louisville -1 Too much Florida St., speaking of teams that gut out tough wins. But a nice W over Virginia Tech.
21 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State -4 Not a great week for Iowa St., but two more opportunities this week for big wins.
22 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo -2 Struggled early with Central Michigan. Buffalo remains on shaky ground. And maybe shouldn’t be ranked.
23 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland 0 Just the one game this week, but Purdue and Michigan loom.
24 Florida State University Logo Florida State NR Really love their toughness and five straight wins are enough to bring them back into the top 25.
25 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech NR Bumped Washington and Baylor out, but Washington should return soon.
