American University LogoKalonKral's Ballot for Week 18 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, March 4, 2019 at 8:49AM EST
1 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga 0 Gonzaga continues crushing the competition.
2 University of Virginia Logo Virginia +1 We know Duke is better than UVA, but now with the two-loss difference, UVA moves up.
3 Duke University Logo Duke -1 They sorely miss Zion, obviously, just VT was without Justin Robinson and they couldn’t get it done. Very disappointing.
4 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee +2 I think whoever wins with SEC Tournament will be our fourth No. 1 seed. UT with the narrow advantage.
5 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina 0 They gutted out a nice win over Clemson, and I like how their multiple stars are becoming more reliable. Especially when it comes to big s
6 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky -2 Certainly a tough loss on the road, though they beat UT by a similar amount at home. Round 3: SEC Tournament?
7 University of Michigan Logo Michigan +1 Had nice wins over Nebraska and on the road at Maryland (good at home!). Tough final test at Michigan St.
8 Louisiana State University Logo LSU +2 This is a TOUGH team. Great rebounding and love when their guards initiate late-game offense. Keep the ball away from Naz Reid!
9 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State -2 I’m keeping Michigan St. here for now because of their strong resume – and because they have about two healthy players.
10 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech +2 Again, my only knock, which keeps me from moving them higher, is the mediocre record against great teams.
11 Purdue University Logo Purdue +2 No real tests for Purdue ahead. Should be smooth sailing into Big 10 tourney.
12 University of Kansas Logo Kansas +4 The king is dead! Long live the king! They beat K State with about three good players, even though Big 12 title may be slim.
13 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech +4 A damn impressive win over depleted Duke. Blackshear has been a beast and Outlaw with some big 3s.
14 University of Houston Logo Houston -5 UCF is pretty good, but a tough one to drop nonetheless. Looking forward to final game against Cincy.
15 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State -1 There is no depth of offense that this team has not plumbed. They are truly abysmal when they want to be.
16 Marquette University Logo Marquette -5 Tough loss against Villanova and played Creighton at the wrong time of year. Prepared to drop them further.
17 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo +3 Nick Perkins has been lighting it up recently. Excited for more March magic from the Bulls.
18 Florida State University Logo Florida State +4 I think they’re really underrated heading into March. 10-1 in last 11, with lone loss at UNC. Will be a tough out.
19 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada -4 This team is imploding at the perfect time! It’s March fellas! Either get it together or be ready for an early exit by a No. 12 seed.
20 Villanova University Logo Villanova +5 They snapped their string of three-straight losses with a couple wins this past week. Back atop the Big East, if that means anything.
21 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin +2 Losing Indiana was the flavor of the week in the Big 10 this week.
22 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland -4 Had one of their worst performances of the year at Penn St. Did a little better at home against Michigan.
23 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State +1 They ran into a buzzsaw at Texas. This team is inconsistent, so why not be as inconsistent and move them up after a loss.
24 University of Central Florida Logo UCF NR After winning at Houston, this team looks very dangerous at the right time of year. American has been very competitive this year.
25 Wofford College Logo Wofford NR After an impressive undefeated run in the SoCon, it’s time to rank Wofford.
