Submitted on Monday, April 11, 2022 at 12:49AM EDT
1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas I mean...what else do I have to say lol
2 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina And the runner-up...
3 Duke University Logo Duke "Third place", on the account of having the closer gamer
4 Villanova University Logo Villanova "Fourth place"...not bad though! Shame they weren't at full-strength
5 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Gonzaga had been dominant enough where they stick around here - though of course, it is far from what they wanted...
6 University of Houston Logo Houston Coogs! They finally belong right where they deserve!
7 University of Arizona Logo Arizona Wildcats season is good enough to keep them from moving a lot, though they drop a bit regardless...
8 University of Arkansas Logo Arkansas Despite the occasional shakiness, the Hogs are very good - and have solidified themselves again in the top!
9 Baylor University Logo Baylor Baylor is good, and was CLOSE to making the Sweet Sixteen and beyond. Now, UNC going to the NCG helps their case, but not by much
10 Purdue University Logo Purdue Obviously a rough way to exit the tournament, but the Boilermakers are Top Ten no matter what by that point!
11 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech VERY underrated - I respect them!
12 Providence College Logo Providence The Friars redeemed themselves from the ugly loss to Creighton to form a successful run - including a decent loss to eventual champions!
13 Auburn University Logo Auburn I don't want to be TOO harsh...but unfortunately, the Tigers stumbled very much over the last few weeks...
14 University of Miami (Florida) Logo Miami (FL) Always hovering underneath the Top 25, the Hurricanes now have made it - and are here to stay!
15 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee SEC Champions give you much room - but getting blown out by Michigan ain't great either way...
16 University of California, Los Angeles Logo UCLA Fairly decent season - could be better, but can't complain at a Sweet Sixteen
17 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Again, can't punish too much, but that was NOT a good loss, even with Saint Peter's being better than we thought...
18 University of Wisconsin-Madison Logo Wisconsin Eh, regular season was good enough, even with the meh postseason
19 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Logo Illinois Ditto...that fits the both of them VERY much!
20 Saint Mary's College of California Logo Saint Mary's Much respect to the WCC - even outside Gonzaga, this is a serious mid-major conference!
21 Iowa State University Logo Iowa State The highest of highs, the lowest of lows...the Cyclones got to experience it all
22 Saint Peter's University Logo St. Peter's P E A C O C K S ! This should be a good placement - deserves to be here!
23 Murray State University Logo Murray State Maybe I am generous, but I can't fault the Racers TOO much here...I believe this is fair
24 University of Michigan Logo Michigan Ugh...fine...the Wolverines were better than I would admit...
25 University of Iowa Logo Iowa Come on, least you won in Indianapolis...
