Submitted on Monday, November 22, 2021 at 9:19AM EST
1 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Big week for the Zags, two wins will probably lock them into #1 for a long time.
2 Purdue University Logo Purdue Canada's finest, Zach Edey is having an incredible start to his sophomore season.
3 University of California, Los Angeles Logo UCLA
4 University of Kansas Logo Kansas
5 University of Houston Logo Houston Another dominant defensive team, they absolutely destroyed Virginia from start to finish.
6 University of Arizona Logo Arizona Tommy Lloyd has a hell of a squad lead by Canada's finest, Bennedict Mathurin, and Christian Koloko is a beast as well.
7 Duke University Logo Duke
8 Brigham Young University Logo BYU Mark Pope is a top 5 coach in the country, and I'm tired of pretending that he's not.
9 University of Alabama Logo Alabama
10 Baylor University Logo Baylor
11 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall Another team with an incredible defensive ceiling, Rhoden will need to be a consistent scorer for this squad to crack the top 10.
12 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky
13 University of Memphis Logo Memphis
14 St. Bonaventure University Logo St. Bonaventure They need to get off to better starts more consistently, but that's pretty much my only complaint about the Bonnies.
15 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech
16 University of Texas at Austin Logo Texas
17 Villanova University Logo Villanova Very rarely is a two loss team still ranked this early in my ballot, but Nova gets a pass due to margin and quality of opponent.
18 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Logo Illinois This team needs Kofi, and the only reason they're still in the top 25 is because he wasn't playing in that debacle in Milwaukee.
19 University of Connecticut Logo UConn
20 Mississippi State University Logo Mississippi State
21 Xavier University Logo Xavier Just wait until this team gets Zach Freemantle back, they could easily be challengers in a deep and talented Big East.
22 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee I still think this team has a high ceiling, but that Villanova game was ugly and Josiah Jordan-James hasn't taken the step forward yet.
23 Indiana University Bloomington Logo Indiana I really missed watching games at Assembly Hall with 100% capacity, those fans just go wild. The Johnnies found that out this week.
24 University of Florida Logo Florida
25 Colorado State University Logo Colorado State Next 15: Michigan, USC, Texas Tech, St. John's, FSU, Marquette, MSU, Providence, LSU, Drake, Utah State, Arkansas, WVU, UCF, Ohio State
