Big Changes to Top 25 in Week 11

Baylor was the top team in the land until this week when they dropped several spots after accounting for their loss to West Virginia. No one expected Baylor to stay in the top spot because of their schedule, but who knew that Villanova would leap Kansas. The only reason this happened is because Kansas has not played the hard part of their schedule yet. They do have a win over Duke and a loss to Indiana which are unfortunately the only two ranked teams they have played all season. They have time to make up for it with 5 games against top 10 opponents left on their schedule.

Rank School Record
1 Villanova 17-1
2 Kansas 16-1
3 UCLA 18-1
4 Gonzaga 17-0
5 Kentucky 15-2
6 Baylor 16-1
7 Creighton 17-1
8 West Virginia 15-2
9 North Carolina 16-3
10 Florida State 16-2
11 Oregon 16-2
12 Louisville 15-3
13 Butler 15-3
14 Arizona 16-2
15 Notre Dame 16-2
16 Virginia 13-3
17 Wisconsin 14-3
18 Duke 14-4
19 Florida 14-3
20 Cincinnati 15-2
21 Purdue 14-4
22 Xavier 13-4
23 Saint Mary’s 15-2
24 South Carolina 14-3
25 Maryland 16-2

By February 2nd we will know exactly what Kansas is made of as they will have played three top 10 games during that span. Villanova will have a tough test with Virginia during that span as well.  In three weeks we could see an entirely different top 10.  This season is exciting as there really is no clear favorite to win it all.
