Submitted on Sunday, December 31, 2017 at 11:58PM EST
1 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (1)
2 Duke University Logo Duke (3) Was a toss up between them an Nova. Ultimately, Duke has looked impressive in their wins. Close though
3 Villanova University Logo Villanova (2) Butler shot lights out, but there were some defensive lapses
4 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (5) Every Big 12 road win is good. Still don't like their Non Conference schedule, but have looked impressive regardless.
5 University of Arizona Logo Arizona (10) 3rd best player was hurt during that Bahamas trip. Zona has looked good against recent competition. I'd take them on a neutral court
6 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (7)
7 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State (6)
8 Purdue University Logo Purdue (9)
9 Xavier University Logo Xavier (8)
10 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall (15)
11 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State (11)
12 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (12)
13 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (16) Big 12 is going to be tough, but KU's AFH home court advantage will be a big player. De Sousa and Preston still not cleared
14 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (17)
15 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (19)
16 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma (20) 1 point road win at TCU. Young will ball out, but someone has to step up with him for OU to have a chance. Need to rebound as well.
17 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M (4) If they get healthy, they'll likely move right back up. Until then, they have fallen
18 Texas Christian University Logo TCU (14) 1 point loss in a game TCU controlled. Issue I have is FT shooting.
19 University of Arkansas Logo Arkansas (22) Too many people are sleeping on this team
20 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (18) Loss to Arkansas isn't that bad
21 Creighton University Logo Creighton (21) Lost to a team they were supposed to lose to. Not punishing a team because of that
22 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (23)
23 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (24)
24 Clemson University Logo Clemson (UR)
25 Southern Methodist University Logo SMU (UR) Others Considered: FSU, Miami, Houston, UCLA. and Michigan. Dropped: #13 Baylor (Have to get healthy to reconsider them) #25 Louisville
