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

Submitted on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 7:32AM EDT
1 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga 0 Can they survive the streaking Pepperdine Waves from sweeping them out of the WCC Tournament?
2 University of Virginia Logo Virginia 0 It wasn’t their prettiest game, but they dispatched Louisville in the end. Gutsy performance.
3 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina +2 There was no doubt that they would beat the Dukies. No Zion and Bolden certainly helped.
4 Duke University Logo Duke -1 I’m not sure where to put Duke right now with Zion on the verge of coming back. They might not be a top 25 team without him.
5 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee -1 A tough loss against a reanimated Auburn squad.
6 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky 0 If either Kentucky or Tennessee wins the SEC Tournamen, they’ll take the fourth No. 1 seed.
7 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech +3 A great finish to the year for Texas Tech. Culver has evolved into quite the player!
8 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State +1 Completed the season sweep of Michigan.
9 University of Michigan Logo Michigan -2 It can certainly be tough for them on the offensive end at times … especially without Charles Matthews.
10 Louisiana State University Logo LSU -2 Without coach Will Wade and possibly Javonte Smart, a murky future for this team.
11 University of Houston Logo Houston +3 A phenomenal performance at Cincinnati. What an explosive offensive surge in the second half.
12 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State +3 It was a long road to get here, but Kansas State finally got back to the place where I thought they’d be at the start of the year.
13 Purdue University Logo Purdue +2 What a coaching job from Matt Painter this year. Though Purdue would stick around, not win a share of the Big 10!
14 Florida State University Logo Florida State +4 The ULTIMATE second half team. No offense in the first half? It’s OK. They’ll wake up at halftime.
15 University of Kansas Logo Kansas -3 Injuries have obviously set this team back, but it’s almost more interesting to see what they can do – backs against the wall.
16 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech -3 A tough loss against streaking Florida St.
17 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo 0 Survived the final two games against Ohio and Bowling Green. Hoping to see a MAC title in Buffalo.
18 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada +1 Are The Troubles over yet? I’m not convinced, but in the chaos, somehow I moved this team up a spot. I need to get my eyes checked.
19 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin +2 I refuse to move them up on the principle that they completely messed up that Ohio St. What a joke performance.
20 Auburn University Logo Auburn NR They’re back boys. A great win over Tennessee means this team could be dangerous with a low seed in March.
21 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland +1 A solid win against Minnesota heading into the Big 10 tourney.
22 Villanova University Logo Villanova -2 Is the Big East turning into the Pac-12? It’s possible to not rank either of these trainwrecks.
23 Marquette University Logo Marquette -7 What has happened to the other players (besides Howard) that we have been praising all year?
24 Virginia Commonwealth University Logo VCU NR Can we take a moment to acknowledge that they have been SMASHING FACES in the A-10? Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
25 Wofford College Logo Wofford 0 They take on my boys at UNCG Monday night. Should be a fantastic game!
