RankTeamReason
1 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Over/under for the amount of weeks Michigan St remains at #1: 0.5.
2 Villanova University Logo Villanova Very tough to rank the top 5 this week. Nova stays the same due to their incredible resume and win against Xavier.
3 Xavier University Logo Xavier Two big games for X this week at home: Seton Hall and #2 Nova.
4 University of Virginia Logo Virginia These guys have an easy enough schedule to win out once the ACCT comes around. Starts in Miami this Tuesday.
5 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech Tech yet again comes out unscathed in the Big 12 bloodbath. Something tells me that they will have the deepest run in the Big 12 come March.
6 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati Two huge wins for Cincy. The real test comes this Sunday, when Shocker Nation comes to town.
7 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State I'm gonna give them the head to head nod over Purdue after their recent victory. Can't wait for them to take on Michigan this Sunday.
8 Purdue University Logo Purdue They are two "buzzer beaters" away from being the #1 team in the country. They should bounce back when they head to Wisconsin.
9 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Damn, what an impressive win against SMC on the road. I am shocked they weren't one of the top 16 seeds.
10 Auburn University Logo Auburn Auburn remains in the top 10. A&M is finally in full strength and they are back to being very tough to beat.
11 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee They did get mauled by Alabama, but the Kentucky win at Rupp evens them out.
12 Duke University Logo Duke 5th loss of the season for Duke. They need more team chemistry if they wanna make it far in March.
13 University of Kansas Logo Kansas What even is the Big 12 this year? Would not be surprised if Kansas goes either 0-2 or 2-0 this week.
14 Clemson University Logo Clemson This ACC team is flying under the radar. Games on the road against FSU and home Duke should be challenging.
15 University of Rhode Island Logo URI URI continues to dominate in their conference. I honestly believe they should have been a 3 seed in the top 16 projections.
16 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina Now that the Irish are finally looking like they can pull themselves together, it may be a tough game for UNC. Also good week for the Heels.
17 University of Arizona Logo Arizona There are some nights where Zona looks like nobody can beat them, and there are others like the home game against UCLA.
18 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia Their win at OU cancels out with their tough home loss to OSU. At least they got back on their feet.
19 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State Shocker Nation benefits from a lot of teams losing this week. Will be a movie when they finally get the chance to play Cincy.
20 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's Devastating loss to the Zags at home. They should be able to win out til their conference tourney.
21 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M They finally look like November and December Texas A&M. If they continue to play this well, the Aggies will be scary come March.
22 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State This spot was down to the winner of UCLA and ASU. Sun Devils are victorious, and come back to the top 25 after a 2 week break.
23 New Mexico State University Logo New Mexico State Impressive comeback against rival GCU. Welcome to the top 25, Aggies. They will win at least 1 game in March.
24 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Well, Michigan never does well when they play at Northwestern. Home game against OSU will be a thrill to watch.
25 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) Three Point Chain U not out of the top 25 just yet. No other team really deserves it, to be honest.
