My AP Top 25 this week

No, despite UConn's 106-85 win over Coppin State, led by Amida Brimah's 40-point, 12-rebound dominance, the Huskies don't re-enter my Top 25 this week. Obviously.

It's funny, though. Even though UConn is 4-3 and didn't receive a single Top 25 vote last week (and likely won't this week, either), the Huskies are really only a few seconds from being 6-1 and firmly in the Top 25. Last-second corner treys by Jonathan Holmes and Jack Montague don't fall, and the Huskies are ranked. And while you can always list a bunch of "if's" for teams that lose close games, in these two cases, it really was just a matter of seconds. UConn seemed en route to victory in both games, even if it didn't play particularly well in either.

Such is the fickle life of a college hoops team in this season of parity, however. Now, if UConn somehow manages to beat No. 2 Duke on Thursday at the IZOD Center, do the Huskies return to the rankings? Kinda have to, don't they?

Anyway, my Top 25:

1. Kentucky
2. Duke
3. Arizona
4. Louisville
5. Wisconsin
6. Villanova
7. Wichita State
8. Texas
9. Gonzaga
10. Virginia
11. Kansas
12. Iowa State
13. Oklahoma
14. Ohio State
15. San Diego State
16. Butler
17. Miami
18. Utah
19. West Virginia
20. Maryland
21. Notre Dame
22. Texas Christian
23. St. John's
24. Washington
25. North Carolina

What do you think about Seton Hall? 8-1, only loss @ Wichita. No big marquee wins, but a top 15 RPI.

When do they get in?
