RankTeamReason
1 University of Arizona Logo Arizona I'm not going to make drastic changes over 1 or 2 games in 3 days. Northwestern dropped out by playing too close against a sub-200 team.
2 Duke University Logo Duke
3 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State
4 University of Kansas Logo Kansas
5 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State
6 Villanova University Logo Villanova
7 University of Florida Logo Florida
8 University of Southern California Logo USC
9 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati
10 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL)
11 Xavier University Logo Xavier I wanted to rank Xavier higher in my preseason but chickened out. After their performance against Morehead State, they get to jump up.
12 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M This team should be destructive when they get all of the pieces back, based off their comeback and dismantling over WVU.
13 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky They played unconvincingly against Utah Valley and Vermont as a Top 10 team.
14 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina
15 University of Notre Dame Logo Notre Dame Notre Dame jumps over Louisville since they won a road game...
16 University of Louisville Logo Louisville ...while Louisville struggled at home.
17 University of Minnesota Logo Minnesota
18 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall
19 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's
20 University of California, Los Angeles Logo UCLA
21 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga
22 Purdue University Logo Purdue
23 Baylor University Logo Baylor
24 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Once again Virginia has the slowest tempo and #1 defense on KenPom, which means they are going to win games.
25 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia Not sure if they deserve to still be ranked after their performance against Texas A&M. Maybe it was from early season jitters and travel.
