1 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Resume-based computer poll incorporating Quality Wins, W/L Record, SOS, MOV, and Efficiency.
2 Villanova University Logo Villanova Designed to mimic selection and seeding for March, though I'll adjust rankings (maximum of 2 spots) to account for recent play.
3 Purdue University Logo Purdue Though designed to reflect March seeding, Efficiency and MOV sway from that, but r included to reflect "better" teams and be more predictive
4 Xavier University Logo Xavier
5 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech Either my system overranks TTU, or the committee has underseeded them.
