1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (+0) They have the best resume/talent combination
2 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (+1) Maybe got lucky against Northwestern but still playing well with some of the best wins so far
3 Duke University Logo Duke (+0) Gonzaga loss makes them look not as solid but still very talented team that will be one of the favorites
4 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (+1) Excellent win against the Zags, favorite to win the SEC especially with UK's loss
5 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (+1) Still playing very controlled Virginia basketball, VCU kept it close but the result wasn't in doubt
6 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (-4) Still very good and beat Duke, but had a very close game against Washington and a loss to a great Tennessee
7 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (+0) Close game against Grand Canyon but still taking care of business
8 Auburn University Logo Auburn (+1) Second best team in SEC after UK's loss

11 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (+1) Have recovered well from Penn St. loss
12 Florida State University Logo Florida State (+1) Several solid wins so far will serve them well come March
13 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (+1) This team had a couple early losses but look to be solidifying and finding their footing
14 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State (+1) Good wins and seem to be leading the middling mess of Big 10 teams behind Michigan and MSU
15 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo (+6) They have at least a chance to go undefeated, with a pretty soft schedule and some harder games behind them
16 Villanova University Logo Villanova (+4) They're doing better after the early semi-collapse, Nova will surely be a very solid team come tournament time
17 Arizona State University Logo Arizona State (+6) Have only lost to Nevada, and that was a close game. The Sun Devils are playing well
18 University of Iowa Logo Iowa (NR) Good rivalry win, these Big Ten teams are hard to rank as they all beat each other
19 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati (NR) Also had a good rivalry win, they've only lost to the Buckeyes
20 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (-12) This team is talented and will be a threat come March, but right now they've lost to every good team they've seen
21 Furman University Logo Furman (NR) Villanova win looks better and better, despite some bad efficiency stats and performances I have to rank them
22 University of Houston Logo Houston (+0) Anyone that is still undefeated this far into the season deserves to be ranked
23 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland (-6) Losing to Purdue doesn't look that bad, and it was a close game
24 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin (-8) Lost to Marquette but it was in OT and this team is still going to be good
