1 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Tier 1a
2 Duke University Logo Duke
3 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Tier 1b
4 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Another week of Gonzaga brutally murdering the WCC what else is new?
5 University of Michigan Logo Michigan
6 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Tier 1C Big oof loss vs Indiana. Hit your god damn free throws. Indiana tried to hand that game back to you
7 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Stay behind UM/MSU.They're behind both most metrics (WAB, SOR, Kpom, torvik) and actually looking game by game doesn't make it look better
8 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina Nice win @ Louisville
9 University of Houston Logo Houston Tier 2a Probably another week of Nevada getting ranked way above Houston for some reason, what else is new?
10 Marquette University Logo Marquette Got their best road win so far. Solid test next weekend, but I'm really eying that 2/27 game
11 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Their SOS is ridiculous, but they can't keep regularly dropping games like @texas
12 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech That NC state game was umm... basketball. Have to respect the win, but NC st is looking more and more like they hid behind weak schedule
13 Villanova University Logo Villanova No notable wins on the week, but they continue to take care of business
14 Purdue University Logo Purdue Tier 2b QuALiTy lOSses+ Nevada tier. Toss up between them and wisco
15 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin Very similar resume to Purdue
16 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada Everyone in the teens sucked the week they took that horrific loss, so they didn't drop much. Now teams are shaping up and I'm jumping them
17 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State Took care of business, but two home wins against meh teams. Hence wisco jumping them
18 University of Louisville Logo Louisville UNC giveth and UNC taketh away
19 University of Iowa Logo Iowa If they could win anything of note on the road or at least a better neutral win then I would have them higher
20 Mississippi State University Logo Mississippi State Tier 3: the big dropoff. Won at Ole Miss, who looks worse every day, but is still good enough to jump kstate
21 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State 5 losses, 3 of which are kinda rough, but better wins by far than those below
22 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati took care of business vs smu meh
23 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech @ Me all you want but they have 5 losses, and their "good" wins look worse every day. How many tourny quality wins do they have? One?
24 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo Their last 2 losses are bad, but teams at this far down either have losses just as bad, have beaten nobody, or have like 8 losses
25 Louisiana State University Logo LSU Losing at home to Arkansas is around as bad as UB's loss on the road to BGSU. Dropped accordingly. 26: Washington 27: FSU 28: Wofford
