RankTeamReason
1 Villanova University Logo Villanova (1) Continues to roll
2 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (2) Debated Purdue here. Ultimately, Virginia has faced tougher competition. Big week for Virginia vs Clemson and at Duke
3 Purdue University Logo Purdue (4) See above. Michigan at home this week
4 Duke University Logo Duke (6) vs Virginia this week. Ought to be a fun one
5 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (8) Don't like Cincinnati this high, but no one else really fits either. Big drop off after 4
6 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (9)
7 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (13)
8 Xavier University Logo Xavier (14)
9 University of Arizona Logo Arizona (10) Close games scare me to rank them this high, but nobody else really deserves it either.
10 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (11) Great comeback win at WVU, and then you almost lost at home to Baylor. Big 12 is weird, but congrats on 14 straight
11 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (3) Bad loss at home due to the nature of it. Blew out Texas. Ultimately fell due to a correction this week with Big 12 teams in their ranks
12 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State (23) Major jump after not losing. Also playing really well
13 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (16) Lost at home, which normally would drop them. St. Mary's is underrated though
14 Auburn University Logo Auburn (17) Lost at Bama, but rebounded well in their next game. Free throws, free throws, free throws.
15 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (5) Lost at Texas, and then blown out at Iowa State. Texas Tech is lucky they aren't getting the OU/Wichita State treatment from me.
16 Clemson University Logo Clemson (24) Lost at UNC for the 59th straight time, but it was by single digits (party!).
17 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (18)
18 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's (UR) Great win at Gonzaga, but this resume still is bad
19 Creighton University Logo Creighton (20) Great win vs Seton Hall, and then you blew it against Providence
20 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall (15) Bad week for Seton Hall. Lost to both ranked teams, 1 at home, 1 on the road.
21 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (20) Bad loss at Iowa, but you did go 2-1 this week. Also, B1G scheduling is really dumb
22 University of Florida Logo Florida (UR) Welcome back.
23 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (UR) Welcome. Great week, even if both were at home. Now go steal some road wins
24 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (UR) Welcome
25 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State (22) Others Considered: WSU, OU, UK, TCU, and Miami. Dropped from rankings: (7) WSU, (12) OU, (19) UK, and (25) TCU
