Syracuse University Logofalconlover79's Ballot for Week 12 of 2017-18

Submitted on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 5:24PM EST
1 Villanova University Logo Villanova (LW: 1) Still easily the top team, their consistency is remarkable.
2 Duke University Logo Duke (LW: 2) Wendell Carter's performance against Miami showed just why Duke is so good; anyone of their freshmen can go off in a given game.
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (LW: 3) Big week coming up for the Hoos as both Clemson and Duke look to solve the packline defence.
4 Purdue University Logo Purdue (LW: 8) After 3 wins over some of the B1G's mediocre teams (which are plentiful), Michigan comes to town for a rematch game.
5 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (LW: 12) I can't give Bill Self enough credit, despite how poor Kansas has played at times this year, they just keep on winning.
6 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia (LW: 4) They may be the best team in the B12, but their offence is just too inconsistent for my liking, as evidenced by the Kansas game.
7 Xavier University Logo Xavier (LW: 9) Still clearly #2 in the Big East, the Musketeers are loaded with talented guards.
8 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (LW: 10) Playing 3 games this upcoming week (wtf Delaney), the Spartans have a chance to show that the Indiana game isn't a fluke.
9 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (LW: 13) The Bearcats are waiting for the year that the AAC plays up to its potential, in spite of Cincy's consistent play.
10 University of Arizona Logo Arizona (LW: 11) Hard to imagine the Pac 12 regular season title going anywhere else after the win over Stanford.
11 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (LW: 6) Tech is finally done with a gruelling stretch of their schedule, which may explain the 2 game slide.
12 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (LW: 17) Tar Heels have rallied from their early-ACC struggles and have a quality win over Clemson to add to their resume.
13 Auburn University Logo Auburn (LW: 14) Going 1-1 in rivalry games against tough SEC teams is nothing to be disappointed about.
14 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma (LW: 7) This team truly does not have a second option for their offence; Trae Young needs some damn help.
15 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State (LW: 5) Yikes. Their defence and offence looked terrible in their 2 respective losses this week. Time to respond positively.
16 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State (LW: 15) I still don't know what to think about ASU. They have to win both games this week or they'll drop hard.
17 Clemson University Logo Clemson (LW: 18) Not a great week for Tiger fans, but they'll have a chance to avenge the UNC loss soon. Avenging the Zion loss is another story.
18 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (LW: 21) Fending off a tough Boise State team on Saturday, Nevada is proving they are worthy of a top 25 ranking
19 University of Florida Logo Florida (LW: NR) The Gators had a rough stretch in December, but they're a quality team. Just wait until Egbunu comes back.
20 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State (LW: 24) 4 straight home games coming up for tOSU (wtf Delany?) so they have a decent chance to go 12-0 to start B1G play.
21 University of Rhode Island Logo URI (LW: NR) The only tournament-worthy team in the A10, and so far they haven't dropped a conference game yet.
22 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (LW: 22) In a normal week, the Vols might have dropped out of the top 25, but a bit a chaos keeps them steady for now.
23 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall (LW: 23) A team that's lost 3 of its last 4, Seton Hall has 7 days to regroup before facing DePaul, much to their relief.
24 University of Louisville Logo Louisville (LW: NR) Not a lot of quality wins for the Cards this year, but getting 5 ACC wins in 6 games is still impressive enough for a rank.
25 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (LW: NR) Been impressed with this team in the last few weeks, 4-3 in the Big 12 so far. Next 5: USC, Alabama, TCU, Michigan, St. Mary's
