My AP Top 25: Serious props to SMU

Yup, I've got SMU ranked No. 16 in the nation. If you watched the Mustangs' thorough dismantling of UConn on Saturday night, I dare you to argue differently.

Of course, if you watched SMU barely squeak by Houston two nights before that, your argument could be valid. Point is, there is so much parity in college basketball these days, and very few consistently good teams. But I believe SMU is a very good team that will make a run in the NCAA tournament this season. Terrific point guard. Strong, experienced frontcourt. Chip on their shoulder from last year's snub. Hall of Fame coach. All sounds good to me.

Could the 'Stangs use another shooter (like, I don't know, Keith Frazier)? Sure. But bet against them come March Madness at your own risk.

My ballot this week:

1. Kentucky
2. Wisconsin
3. Duke
4. Virginia
5. Gonzaga
6. Villanova
7. Arizona
8. Kansas
9. Northern Iowa
10. Utah
11. Iowa State
12. Louisville
13. Notre Dame
14. Wichita State
15. Maryland
16. SMU
17. Arkansas
18. North Carolina
19. West Virginia
20. Butler
21. Oklahoma
22. Ohio State
23. VCU
24. Oklahoma State
25. Baylor

The problem with is SMU is unfortunately UCONN just isn't a very good team. SMU has feasted on being in a terrible conference and racked up wins all year against terrible teams. They are 2-5 against the RPI top 50.
