1 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (--) let the conference tourneys begin
2 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (--) THIS IS MARCH
3 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (+2) 3-6 close together, pretty much any ordering makes sense
4 Duke University Logo Duke (-1) now they're merely mortal
5 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (-1) can't feel good getting smacked in the mouth by Tennessee like that
6 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (+2) good job making everyone question the hierarchy of this conference
7 Louisiana State University Logo LSU (+3) didn't even realize I made an SEC block until I typed this message
8 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (+3) I mean, you still have to face Sparty again
9 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (+5) good job taking down the ESPN-fueled juggernaut
10 Purdue University Logo Purdue (+1) they're not the best team in the conference, but they're the best by record, which is all that really counts
11 University of Houston Logo Houston (-5) is UCF a good team because they beat Houston, or were they already good? find out later on
12 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (-3) Indiana is making the tournament simply because of these here chuckleheads
13 Florida State University Logo Florida State (+3) just another week in the ACC I guess
14 Marquette University Logo Marquette (-7) rough time to lose momentum, hope it comes back before the conference tourney
15 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (+2) still don't believe in *all* the hype, but at least they're my highest-ranked B12 team now
16 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo (+4) it would be foolish to separate the mid-major pact
17 Wofford College Logo Wofford (+4) they're an at-large for sure, we may see a 2-bid SoCon if any upsets occur
18 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (+6) for the first time in nearly 2 months, Kansas wins a road game without needing to go to OT
19 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (-6) I get Utah St. isn't a bad team, but if you're truly a top-tier mid-major, you win those games
20 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (-5) the word of the day is "home court advantage"
21 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (+2) multi-bid American looks to be a go
22 Villanova University Logo Villanova (NR) I feel like I just got rid of these guys, and here they come crawling back again
23 Virginia Commonwealth University Logo VCU (+2) a very hot team, but one that probably needs the conference tourney autobid to get in
24 University of Central Florida Logo UCF (NR) you have my attention, beat Cincinnati and you guys are in at-large conversations
25 Old Dominion University Logo Old Dominion (NR) congrats on the regular season title -- DROPPED: Iowa 18, Washington 19, Maryland 22
