RankTeamReason
1 Xavier University Logo Xavier I've had Xavier higher ranked than Michigan State since MSU's bad week back in January. MSU took a jump, but not over Xavier
2 Villanova University Logo Villanova
3 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Michigan State actually still got a big jump from me for beating Purdue this week.
4 University of Virginia Logo Virginia
5 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati
6 Purdue University Logo Purdue Purdue's toughest week. Could have won both games. But they lost, so they fall
7 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech
8 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Great win for Gonzaga on Saturday. They get a big jump from all the upsets this week. But w/ remaining schedule, this is probably ceiling.
9 Duke University Logo Duke
10 Auburn University Logo Auburn
11 Clemson University Logo Clemson
12 University of Kansas Logo Kansas
13 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State
14 University of Arizona Logo Arizona
15 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina
16 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Tennessee doesn't move much even though they got blown out by Alabama. Winning at Rupp helped that.
17 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's
18 University of Rhode Island Logo URI
19 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia
20 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma I wanted to drop them further, but then I ran into "who else could go up higher." These upsets really mess with the bottom of the poll.
21 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State
22 New Mexico State University Logo New Mexico State Thankfully they won at Grand Canyon, because I don't know if there is a 25th team that deserves being in.
23 Creighton University Logo Creighton Again, bottom of the poll is a mess. Almost win vs Xavier, but even with the loss, I rewarded them. Because I couldn't find anyone better rn
24 University of Michigan Logo Michigan
25 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State I had them out of my top 25 all week, but after all the other losses, they had to go back in. Someone from 26-30 steps up can take this spot
