9 Duke University Logo Duke LW: 11
10 University of Kansas Logo Kansas LW: 10
11 Auburn University Logo Auburn LW: 5. Lost at home by 1 to a surging A&M team, nothing to be ashamed of. I do have questions about this team's ceiling
12 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina LW: 19. Huge win over Duke and a revenge win over State. Still, these guys aren't the Final Four teams we've seen the past couple years
13 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga LW: 16
14 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State LW: 20. @Purdue is a monster win. With respect to Bennett and Beard, Holtmann might just be coach of the year.
15 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee LW: 12
16 Texas A&M University Logo Texas A&M LW: NR. In the past week they won vs Kentucky and @Auburn. Their extended slump might've made people forget about how talented they are
17 University of Arizona Logo Arizona LW: 18
18 University of Rhode Island Logo URI LW: 21
19 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's LW: 13. A loss to Zaga isn't a concern, but Jock Landale being held to 4 on just 4 shots is. Looking forward to a conf tourney rubber match
20 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia LW: 14. WVU has joined Florida, Bama, and Carolina as the teams I just don't get this year. They might win or lose any given game
21 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma LW: 15. Tough losses this week, but both were forgivable. @Texas Tech on Tuesday is gonna be insane, let's see if they can sweep!
22 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky LW: 17. People need to calm down about UK. No, this isn't a championship-caliber team. But their losses this week won't kill them.
23 Creighton University Logo Creighton LW: 24
24 University of Michigan Logo Michigan LW: 23
25 University of Florida Logo Florida LW: NR. My favorite vexing team is back with a couple nice wins this week. Now they'll probably lose to Georgia at home
