Top 25

  • #2 UCLA and #4 Baylor who are now #2 switched after UCLA’s loss to Oregon.  Oregon was the second biggest mover from #21 to #15, the biggest was FSU who moved up 8 spots from #20 to #12, but the real biggest mover Indiana fell out, however they received the same amount of votes as USC for the #25 spot.
  • #5 Zaga finally cracked the top 5.
  • #7 West Virginia is now in the Top 10 after a hot start to their season.
  • #10 Creighton holds their spot in the top 10 after a loss to #1 Nova.
  • #14 UNC fell out of the top 10 after their upset loss to Gtech.
  • #20 Purdue fell 5 spots after their loss to hot Minnesota who received the most votes outside the Top 25.
  • #21 Virginia Tech is now ranked after dismantling #8 Duke.
  • #24 Florida in my opinion should not be ranked over Clemson or Minnesota who are barely on the outside.
