Submitted on Monday, February 11, 2019 at 9:59AM EST
1 Duke University Logo Duke I know they won't shoot that well every night or even most nights, but if they even shoot half as well... oof
2 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee no knock on Tennessee but duke won at Virginia
3 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina The blue bloods (UNC and UK specifically) have returned. Unfortunately.
4 University of Virginia Logo Virginia I'm conflicted here as it was a statistically absurd night for Duke, but they did lose at home by quite a bit. Only drop one though.
5 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga I was really high on Gonzaga going into the season, but its unfortunate they never have any conference opportunities to push themselves up
6 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky That stint of Kentucky being bad was nice, but I guess we can't have nice things so.
7 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Have some offensive struggles, but they have individuals who can go off (Poole, Teske, Iggy) and a PG to take them through the tough times.
8 Marquette University Logo Marquette Markus Howard is good at basketball, and the Hauser boys are slightly less good but still good
9 University of Houston Logo Houston Beat top-25 Cincinnati
10 Purdue University Logo Purdue Little bit of a homer move, but the biggest knock against Purdue before was its lack of depth, and the stat sheet has never been more spread
11 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada Same as Gonzaga
12 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Hot take: Illinois is a tournament team that played too hard of a schedule, the loss still doesn't look great, but the skid has stopped.
13 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Close loss @Kstate
14 Louisiana State University Logo LSU Beat two really good teams in Mississippi State and Auburn
15 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech They may not win the Big 12, but can they help dethrone Kansas?? or will they eat every other team and lose to KU by 20? Who knows?
16 University of Louisville Logo Louisville I'm pretty impressed with the job Mack has been able to do in a program everyone thought was dead in the water.
17 Villanova University Logo Villanova I'm sure the wildcats will look forward to their rematch with Marquette in their own house
18 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin They won @Minnesota and lost on the road to a team ranked higher
19 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland Despite my love for Tim Miles, beating Nebraska is getting less and less impressive... still it was in Pinnacle so
20 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State losing at home = oof
21 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech I got the displeasure of watching V-tech without Justin Robinson... let's just say, Buzz really needs him to come back
22 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo I like Buffalo, but same as Gonzaga and Nevada, all their conference games can do is lower their stock.
23 University of Iowa Logo Iowa Some days I love Iowa, some days I hate Iowa... I'm not sure
24 University of Washington Logo Washington Continues to steam roll through an albeit weak PAC-12, but being 10-1 in a (used-to-be)-major conference is no joke.
25 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State Beating Kansas is big time and there's a real chance they could dethrone them.
