My Top 25 -- No UConn

Sorry, but for the first time this season, UConn is out this week. While losses to Cincinnati and an improving, young Tennessee (on the road) doesn't comprise the worst week in the history of basketball ... well, you saw the same games I did. The Huskies aren't a very good team right now, for a variety of reasons.

Bottom line: there's too much parity in college basketball today to keep a team that's lost two straight and four of its last six in the Top 25 and keep out some burgeoning teams with lesser pedigree. So UConn is out (along with Indiana, Illinois, Cincinnati and New Mexico). I welcome in West Virginia, Kansas State, Dayton, Wichita State and Florida State.

Yeah, I know the Seminoles are only 12-6 overall. Yeah, I know UConn beat them in the Bahamas. But when you beat North Carolina so bad that Roy Williams drags his scholarship players off the court with 14 seconds to go one Saturday, then beat Duke at Cameron Indoor the next, you're worthy of a Top 25 vote.

1. Kentucky
2. Missouri
3. Ohio State
4. Syracuse
5. Kansas
6. North Carolina
7. Duke
8. Baylor
9. Michigan State
10. Georgetown
11. San Diego State
12. UNLV
13. Florida
14. Murray State
15. Creighton
16. St. Mary’s
17. Mississippi State
18. Marquette
19. Gonzaga
20. Virginia
21. West Virginia
22. Kansas State
23. Dayton
24. Wichita State
25. Florida State

Walter, your comment makes only slightly more sense than David's weekly top 25.
