American University LogoKalonKral's Ballot for Week 11 of 2018-19

Submitted on Monday, January 14, 2019 at 7:45AM EST
1 Duke University Logo Duke 0 Cam Reddish steps up and downs Florida St. on the road. Now they face another tough defense: Virginia.
2 University of Michigan Logo Michigan 0 The unstoppable machine rolls on. Maybe Happ and Co. can defeat this other undefeated team?
3 University of Virginia Logo Virginia 0 Incredibly impressive win against Clemson. Held the Tigers to fewer points than Alabama did – in football.
4 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee 0 Surged ahead of Florida in the end. And, of course, a big 3 from the Admiral sealed the victory.
5 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga 0 San Francisco is legit. Gonzaga played well and it was worth staying up late to watch my yearly West Coast game.
6 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State 0 Solid wins over Purdue and Penn St. shows that there’s no stopping the Spartans in the Big Ten.
7 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech 0
8 University of Kansas Logo Kansas 0
9 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech +1
10 Auburn University Logo Auburn -1 After the top 9, which are pretty solid, this next group is really struggling.
11 Florida State University Logo Florida State +2 They played Duke really tough and end up moving up after a loss due to the struggles of others.
12 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina 0 The inconsistency is so real with this team. They have time to right the ship before Jan. 21 and Virginia Tech.
13 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada -2 They were pretty underwhelming against Fresno St., and I just see them continuing to slide in my poll.
14 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky +1 Perhaps it’s by default, but I think they move ahead of NC St. I think they’re bringing more to the table.
15 North Carolina State University Logo NC State -1 Would’ve liked to have seen a better performance against Pitt. But they had a great comeback to nab the W.
16 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo +3 They came up big against Toledo. 110 points!
17 Marquette University Logo Marquette +1 They bounced back nicely against Creighton and Seton Hall, making their way through tough conference games.
18 University of Mississippi Logo Ole Miss NR What a week for Kermit Davis and Ole Miss. Two great wins against Auburn and Mississippi St!
19 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland NR Quietly put together a nice run to start conference play with wins over Nebraska, Minnesota and Indiana.
20 University of Iowa Logo Iowa NR Again, another team starting conference play off on the right foot: Wins over Nebraska and Ohio St. at home.
21 University of Oklahoma Logo Oklahoma +4 It’s not so much what Oklahoma did, but everyone at the bottom of the poll disintegrated. Not a bad resume, but need a signature W.
22 Mississippi State University Logo Mississippi State -5 I’d rather still have three-loss Mississippi St. in the top 25 than some of the other teams I dropped out.
23 University of Louisville Logo Louisville NR Who knows what this team is capable of. They have great wins and some bad losses.
24 University of Houston Logo Houston -3 Was going to drop them out after loss to Temple. There may be more bumps ahead, but a major conference team will have to take their spot.
25 St. John's University Logo St. John's -5 Another week and another set of excuses on behalf of St. John’s. No Ponds in loss to DePaul.
