Duke University Logoshaidar9haran's Ballot for Week 11 of 2017-18

Submitted on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 9:50AM EST
1 Villanova University Logo Villanova I can admit where I was wrong, Villanova truly is the most complete team in the country and I'm not sure they lose more than 2 more times.
2 Purdue University Logo Purdue Purdue continued their amazing streak with two A-Level road wins in conference play, their 14 game W streak includes 5 A-Level Wins.
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Each week I get closer and closer to truly valuing this Virginia team, the offense is more balanced than I thought w/ Hall and Jerome...
4 Duke University Logo Duke Two easy wins hopefully gave them time to work on some things, the use of White/O'Connell/Robinson was a welcome sight... 'not deep' sure...
5 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State This teams best player might be only 6th in minutes and it befuddles me. TOs have killed this team on both ends.
6 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia FTA/FGA is never going to be a stat WVU is good in, but they cannot be this bad, 24/28 for TTU is a back breaker. Defend without fouling.
7 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma Trae Young is really good. This team is really good. Could be better on the offensive boards, but they're not missing much to begin with.
8 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State Their AAC schedule is backloaded, but this week should at least be interesting with bouts against Houston and SMU
9 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech The Senior-Freshman backcourt is just phenomenal and showed poise, talent, athleticism down the stretch against WVU
10 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati This team is better than people think. The offense has started to catch up to the defense, if they were in a better conference...
11 Xavier University Logo Xavier The gap between Nova and the rest is huge, that said this team is likely the clear #2 .
12 University of Arizona Logo Arizona Miller is still too stubborn about his rotations and it's hampering the team, luckily they have more raw talent than anyone to fall back on
13 University of Kansas Logo Kansas An easier Conference start than most in the B12, Inability to get to the line will hurt them vs. the tough Ds in conference.
14 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina This team will win against teams who are less athletic than them, teams without a strong inside D, and will lose against the opposite. Mehq
15 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Really good and really complete, don't sleep on them though it might be tempting.
16 Auburn University Logo Auburn Just two top 50 victories, but 16-1 is hard to deny, especially with a win already against the best team in the SEC
17 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Bounced back after a rough start to Conference Play, defense has a few things to work on, namely rebounding.
18 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State KenPom was right, I'll accept my apology cards in my inbox. The team was shooting at an unsustainable rate and lack of D is still alarming.
19 University of Michigan Logo Michigan What a week, pushed Purdue to the brink and beat MSU on the road, showed it could hang with two top 5 squads
20 Clemson University Logo Clemson Even with wins over UL and Miami, still waiting for this team to 'prove it'... Chapel Hill would be a nice way to do that.
21 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State 6-0 in Conference, KBD looking like a NPOY candidate, no bad losses, but no huge OOC wins either. Perplexing.
22 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Average. Average offense, average defense. Average decision making, average rotations. Nothing about this team inspires or really detracts
23 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall A team with this talent and senior leadership should not be getting blown out @ marquette.
24 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) The talent is still there, I may be ranking them as I preemptively expect them to destroy Duke this week as they're want to do.
25 Texas Christian University Logo TCU 1-4 to start Conference play, all A level games 3 on road, and 3 went to OT, just missing it.Next 5: St. Mary's, Nevada, Creighton, FSU, URI
