Pennsylvania State University LogoMetaKoopa99's Ballot for Week 5 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, December 3, 2018 at 12:10AM EST
1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Kansas remains at the top despite a close call against unranked Stanford. You can thank Lagerald Vick for staying at #1, Jayhawk fans.
2 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Nice second-half rally from Norvell and the Bulldogs against Creighton to remain unbeaten. UW, Tenn, and UNC are up next. Can they go 3-0?
3 Duke University Logo Duke No surprise that Duke stays in the top 3 with dominant performances over Indiana and Stetson. Looking forward to Texas Tech on December 20.
4 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Sorry Cavs and Wolf Pack. Gotta bump you guys down a spot in order to move Michigan up. They beat Purdue and UNC by a combined 36 points!
5 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Still looking impressive even with Maryland providing a scare. Too bad they couldn't maintain that streak of holding opponents under 60.
6 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada Another flawless week keeps the Wolf Pack near the top of the pack. Caroline, Martin and Martin might be the best trio outside of Duke.
7 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Vols take care of business this week and improve to 6-1 with only a loss to Kansas. In just a week, they get Gonzaga. Oh, joy!
8 Auburn University Logo Auburn Similar to Tennessee. Not much exciting going on this past week; they just took care of business like they were supposed to. Life goes on!
9 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky I'm still not sold on Kentucky, but with everyone else in this range losing, I have no choice but to bump them up a few spots.
10 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech What's this? Top 10 Texas Tech?!? You better believe it. The Red Raiders are still undefeated, and Jarrett Culver might literally be God.
11 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Drop of 3 with an OT loss against Louisville and a scare from Rutgers. Joshua Langford is a good player, but make your free throws, man!
12 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo No, I don't think #12 is too high. Buffalo can ball, and they backed it up by knocking off unbeaten San Francisco in Belfast. Keep chargin'!
13 Florida State University Logo Florida State Florida State rebounds nicely by snagging a victory over Purdue after a tight loss to Villanova. That should keep the ball rolling!
14 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech They lost to my Nittany Lions, but they still played a great game, shooting over 50% from three. No doubt that they'll rebound soon.
15 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State Drop of 5 after a 12-point loss to Marquette. But maybe they wouldn't have lost if they hadn't fouled Markus Howard a million times!
16 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin I've had Wisconsin unranked all year, though I think that was a mistake. Back-to-back wins over previously unbeaten NC State and Iowa.
17 University of Iowa Logo Iowa Only a one-spot drop for the Hawkeyes after playing Wisconsin close. Big challenge coming on Monday with a trip to East Lansing!
18 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State Hey, they're undefeated in non-conference yet again. How long will that last though? I've got a feeling Nevada is going to be ending that.
19 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State Yeah, that game against Syracuse didn't exactly have a pretty ending for the Buckeyes, but I won't punish them too much. Nice win vs. Minny.
20 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland I haven't been giving the Terps enough credit. Maryland has some shooters with Cowan and Fernando. Too bad my Nittanies were the victims.
21 University of Nebraska-Lincoln Logo Nebraska It's a Big Ten party here in the middle ranks! Nebrasketball has been back in top form after that loss to TTU, including a win over Clemson.
22 Mississippi State University Logo Mississippi State I'm not positive that Mississippi State truly deserves to be this high, but with everyone else losing I'm not sure where else to put them.
23 University of Houston Logo Houston Gotta show some love for the Cougars! Not only are they undefeated but they also just knocked off Oregon (who has promptly fallen out).
24 Furman University Logo Furman I WILL CONTINUE TO RANK FURMAN UNTIL THOSE COWARDS AT AP DO THE SAME! (But really that 2OT game vs. WCU was scary... watch out, Paladins!)
25 Villanova University Logo Villanova Yeah, yeah, welcome back Wildcats. You're lucky Eric Paschall can ball or you'd have had your second mid-major upset this year already!
