We have a new member in our Top Ten.

How can we value a team that beat Louisville after losing to N.C. State and Miami?
Jan 12, 2015, 6:26 AM EST
Five top ten teams lost last week. Conference play, baby.
Jan 5, 2015, 6:58 AM EST
There is some movement in the Top Ten, with the first appearance for a team from the Pac-12.
Dec 29, 2014, 6:57 AM EST
Who moved into the Top 10 this week and who dropped out?
Dec 22, 2014, 6:30 AM EST
The top 12 remain the same, but there was plenty of movement in and around the rest of the top 25.
Dec 15, 2014, 7:00 AM EST
It was a slow week, meaning that there weren’t that many upsets and, thus, not much change to the Top 25.
Dec 8, 2014, 7:00 AM EST
There was some shuffling among the top five this week after we got three sensational matchups.
Dec 1, 2014, 7:00 AM EST
Will we see a battle of two top three teams next week?
Nov 24, 2014, 7:00 AM EST
Putting together a top 25 this early is tough to do as we balance expectations with early season performance.
Nov 17, 2014, 7:00 AM EST
This loss will hurt Harvard more than a normal Top 25 team.
Oct 16, 2014, 1:03 PM EST
Three other teams got first-place votes.

Florida is still No. 1. Wichita State is still No. 2. How does the rest of the Top 25 shake out?

Virginia is the perfect example of why unbalanced schedules as a result of conference expansion is lame. The three teams that the ‘Hoos played twice during ACC play were Florida State, Maryland and Notre Dame. They didn’t have to play at North Carolina or at Syracuse. So while I certainly respect that the only loss…

Arguing over whether or not Wichita State deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country is a conversation that is going to overtake college hoops over the next couple of weeks. Here’s my take: Florida deserves to be the No. 1 team in the country this week, even with their struggles over the…

Thanks to road wins over the two toughest teams in the Missouri Valley this week, we’ve reached the point in the season where it seems more likely that Wichita State will head into the postseason with a perfect record. What that means is that over the course of the next five weeks, the biggest topic…

I spent the morning arguing with Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com for his decision to include SMU in his Top 25. You can see it here. SMU is sitting right there at No. 25 despite the fact that, just six days ago, the Mustangs lost to South Florida at South Florida. His justification, more or less,…

The toughest team to rank this week was Michigan, a team sitting at 15-4 on the season that, until last week, wasn’t even in the conversation to be in the top 25. I had them 18th last week. I slotted them No. 5 this week. Too high? Maybe, but there are a couple of things…

For the first time since November 25th, 2007, Duke’s basketball program isn’t ranked in the top ten of the AP poll. Let me say that again. For the first time in 122 weeks — in more than six full seasons — Duke’s slid outside the top ten of the AP poll. That’s the second-longest streak…
Jan 6, 2014, 9:26 AM EST
Last week, I had Michigan State sitting at fifth behind four undefeated teams: Arizona, Syracuse, Wisconsin and Ohio State. This week? I have the Spartans second, jumping them past Syracuse, Wisconsin and Ohio State despite the fact that none of those three teams lost this week. Which probably doesn’t make a ton of sense considering…

What do we do with Villanova and Louisville this week? The Wildcats lost on the road to Syracuse, the nation’s No. 2 team, by 16 points in a game that was closer during the second half than the final score would indicate. That’s a game Villanova is supposed to lose. The same can be said…
Dec 23, 2013, 9:29 AM EST
For the second straight week, the top seven teams in the country are exactly the same. In fact, the only team from last week’s top 15 that lost this past week was UConn, who is now No. 15 in the country. That much likely won’t change next week, either, as only six teams in the…
Dec 2, 2013, 9:35 AM EST
There was quite a bit of shuffling in the top 25 this week, as eight of the teams featured in last Monday’s top 25 took a loss, including three of the top ten. That opened the door for teams like Syracuse and Ohio State to climb their way into the top five. At the other…

Four of the nation’s top five teams took the court in Chicago this week, and the two that were victorious have rightfully found themselves at the top of CBT’s latest top 25. Michigan State slides into the top spot after knocking off then-No. 1 Kentucky, while Kansas jumps up to second with their win over…
