Pennsylvania State University LogoMetaKoopa99's Ballot for Week 11 of 2019-20

Submitted on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at 11:32PM EST
1 Baylor University Logo Baylor (+4) And we have a new No. 1. Sorry Duke and Butler. With back-to-back road wins over TTU and KU, Baylor has the best résumé in the country.
2 Duke University Logo Duke (-1) Despite having an inferior résumé to some of the other top teams, Duke still has a firm grasp at No. 1 in the KenPom AdjEM rankings.
3 San Diego State University Logo San Diego State (0) SDSU is breezing through conference play and remains undefeated at 17-0. Getting genuinely curious as to when the Aztecs finally lose.
4 Butler University Logo Butler (0) Butler has the second best résumé after Baylor and is 3-0 in the Big East. Through 16 games, LaVall Jordan has a stellar case for COTY.
5 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (0) After being nearly upset by Portland and Pepperdine, the Zags built confidence by slamming San Diego and Santa Clara. Back to normal?
6 Auburn University Logo Auburn (+1) Vandy certainly gave Auburn a scare, but, as they say, a win is a win, and Auburn has 15 of 'em compared to zero losses. Still perfect.
7 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State (+1) WSU proved me right that it is a top 10 team by beating Memphis, then nearly proved me wrong by almost losing to UConn. Don't do that.
8 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (-6) There you go. KU finally played a bad game. And yet, despite three losses, the metrics and résumé don't lie: KU is still a top 10 team.
9 University of Oregon Logo Oregon (0) Thrilling home win over Zona. The Ducks are off to a 3-1 start in conference. Right now, I like Pritchard as the Pac-12 POTY over Nnaji.
10 Florida State University Logo Florida State (+1) Quietly one of the better teams in college basketball. The Noles are top 15 in KenPom and own a few really good wins. Watch out, ACC.
11 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (+1) WVU has a serious argument to be ranked higher than No. 11. Responded to a close road loss to KU with great wins over OKST and TTU.
12 University of Dayton Logo Dayton (+2) Quiet week for the Flyers, just a 28-point win over UMass. With other top teams losing, Dayton benefits and moves up a couple spots.
13 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (+4) Kentucky remains on a roll with wins over Georgia and Alabama in the past week, the former on the road. SEC dominance as usual, maybe?
14 University of Louisville Logo Louisville (+4) Louisville's free fall stops with moralizing wins over Miami at home and Notre Dame on the road. But a trip to Duke looms Saturday.
15 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (-2) What the hell? MSU looks unbeatable through five B10 games then loses by 29 at Purdue. Good résumé elsewhere keeps them from free fall.
16 Villanova University Logo Villanova (+6) Other ranked teams losing this week also keeps MSU from free fall. Same logic applies to Nova, who jumps six after beating Georgetown.
17 University of Memphis Logo Memphis (-2) Lost badly to WSU. Made a game of it near the end but trailed by as much as 19. Better figure it out w/o Wiseman before it's too late!
18 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland (-2) Losing by 18 at Iowa is a tough pill to swallow, but let's not forget Maryland's four quality wins (Marquette, Illinois, Indiana, OSU).
19 University of Colorado Logo Colorado (+4) Colorado is looking nice. Absolutely eviscerated Utah at home and now has a road trip through the Grand Canyon State coming next week.
20 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall (NEW) Surprise, surprise! The Pirates are back. Seton Hall takes advantage of other ranked teams falling by starting Big East play 4-0.
21 Stanford University Logo Stanford (NEW) Stanford is quietly 14-2 with a 3-0 start in conference play. But their résumé still lacks a defining win (closest would be over OU).
22 University of Arkansas Logo Arkansas (NEW) Rejoice, Hogs! I have you ranked for the first time this year. But it's only because nearly every damn in my rankings last week lost.
23 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (-2) The rankings are so wild that we have a five-loss team in Michigan hanging around. It's the quality wins that saved them, as per usual.
24 Indiana University Bloomington Logo Indiana (NEW) I may as well throw darts at a wall now. We'll go with IU, despite nearly losing at home to Northwestern. College basketball is weird.
25 Creighton University Logo Creighton (NEW) A Q1 win on the road this week? Sure, you're ranked. What a crazy week, man. Next 5: Illinois, Ohio State, Iowa, Arizona, Virginia
