RankTeamReason
1 University of Virginia Logo Virginia UVA is back as the #1 team. Hopefully Bonzie will be back when we play them this Saturday.
2 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Congrats on the B1G. I had no idea the tourney was this upcoming weekend. I'm excited for it.
3 Villanova University Logo Villanova Unfortunate loss to Creighton in OT. I still think they will coast in the Big East tourney.
4 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Well, the dark side of the B12 comes out on top once again. Thanks, Texas Tech.
5 Xavier University Logo Xavier Hopefully X won't almost lose to DePaul again. If that happens, their ranking will definitely fall.
6 Duke University Logo Duke Tough slate of games this week for the Dookies: home against VT and UNC. Two challenges during their 5 game win streak.
7 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Teams 4-7 stay the same after a relatively boring week of college basketball. Zags looked good, though.
8 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina Good win against a scary and hungry Cuse win. They head to Cameron to try to sweep Dook this year.
9 Purdue University Logo Purdue Regular season is complete for the Boilermakers. I wanna see them play Ohio St or Michigan St again.
10 Wichita State University Logo Wichita State Hopefully they have figured out what went wrong for them in the middle of the season. Rematch with Cincy will be a movie.
11 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State Buckeyes bounce back after a rough week last week.
12 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati Cincy gets back on their feet with an underrated home win against Tulsa. Rematch with Shocker Nation is this Saturday.
13 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Vols get back on their feet with two solid wins this week. Two trap games coming up though (at Miss St, home Georgia).
14 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech That's three in a row for the Tortillas. They had one job to end Kansas' streak at home, and couldn't seal the deal.
15 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Michigan flies under the radar and enters the top 15. Will make some noise in the B1G tourney.
16 Auburn University Logo Auburn Heartbreaking loss against Florida. Still 1st place in the SEC though, they can make some moves come March.
17 University of Arizona Logo Arizona Rough week, huh?
18 University of Rhode Island Logo URI URI bounces back after a road loss to the Bonnies. Will cruise in the A-10 Tourney.
19 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's Completely missed their loss last week, so I'm dropping them two spots.
20 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia Press Virginia went a week without losing. Good for them.
21 Clemson University Logo Clemson Clemson looking for that revenge game against FSU. Then they go to the Carrier Dome, to get revenge from the football season.
22 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada Congrats to Nevada for not dropping out of my rankings two weeks in a row! Props to you.
23 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) Three Point Chain U re-enters the top 25 after ending ND's season. If they win a game in the ACCT, they should be fine.
24 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Welcome back, Wildcats. Hopefully for them the three game winning streak will carry into the SECT.
25 Middle Tennessee State University Logo MT The Blue Raider's first appearance in my top 25. They should be matched with a B1G team for their annual 1st round upset.
