University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logorickym24's Ballot for Week 15 of 2018-19

Submitted on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 8:26PM EST
1 Duke University Logo Duke (+1) New #1 after beating the previous #1 on their court. If they shoot like that (they won't) nobody in the country can beat them
2 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee (+2) @UK is gonna be huge for both teams. Although I think Kentucky will win it, UT remains a solid top tier team
3 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga (+1) Their absolute dominance of the WCC is the reason I'm putting them above Virginia, even though in my mind they are even
4 University of Virginia Logo Virginia (-3) Got Ty Jerome back, still lost. Duke shot great but UVA gave them a ton of open looks. @UNC is a chance to bounce back.
5 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky (-) Great win @MissSt. Defending home court vs LSU and UT could be 2 more huge wins and are games I think they should win
6 University of Michigan Logo Michigan (-) Nice win over Wiscy at home. Need to do that again vs Maryland.
7 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina (-) Put up 113 against NCSU, then let Miami take them to OT... Remains a weird team but need to play their best against Virginia
8 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada (-) Nice little revenge win, probably should be close to losing any games other than @Utah State for the rest of the year
9 University of Houston Logo Houston (+5) @UCF and vsCincy are two huge wins. Now up to 24-1, no matter what league you're in thats fantastic
10 Purdue University Logo Purdue (+6) Big jump this week for Purdue. A very real path has opened up for them to win the B1G
11 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State (-4) Lose at Illinois but destroy Minnesota at home? I have no idea what the hell this team is anymore
12 Marquette University Logo Marquette (-2) Swept by the Johnnies? Not sure what to make of that. Rebounded by beating Nova, still need to make up ground in the BE
13 Villanova University Logo Villanova (-) No movement for them. Tough loss by a single point to what I had ranked as a top 10 team.
14 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech (+4) Maybe the best B12 team after ISU shit themselves? Who really knows. Need to defend home court vs Baylor
15 University of Kansas Logo Kansas (-4) K-State isn't a bad loss but now without Vick it might actually be the year the streak ends (Just kidding it won't happen)
16 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State (-1) They pooped themselves against TCU. Something something Big 12 refuses to change
17 University of Louisville Logo Louisville (-) Nice win over depleted VT but couldn't pull it out @FSU, nothing to be ashamed of
18 Florida State University Logo Florida State (+1) 5 straight for the Noles, picked up a good win over Louisville this week
19 Louisiana State University Logo LSU (+5) Two really good wins this week, now they get to visit Kentucky
20 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin (-) Another road win over Minnesota but couldn't do the same @Michigan. Thought they'd go 1-1 and they did
21 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State (NR) Welcome to the poll, huge week beating Kansas and Baylor. Could they be the team to end the streak? (No, of course not)
22 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech (-11) I honestly want to unrank this team because I don't think they are top 25 quality w/o Robinson but I'll give them another week
23 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo (-1) MACtion continues, need to win @Akron big time
24 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland (NR) Nebraska is pretty depleted but its still a decent win. Need to win vsPurdue cause they probably won't @Michigan. Gotta get to 1-1
25 Wofford College Logo Wofford (NR) 4 out of my next 5 last week lost as well as Auburn... Welcome to the poll Terriers (Next 5 - Cincy, Miss St, TCU, Iowa, Lipscomb)
