My AP Top 25 this week

Not a whole lot new. Georgetown out, Oklahoma State in. Thought about Murray State (always like to look out for the little guy). Would've put in Tulsa had it defeated SMU on Saturday night. Syracuse's absence is self-imposed. And we bumped up Carolina a notch out of respect to Dean Smith (not the real reason).

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

West Virginia at 16 after back to back losses by 19 and 18 points? What?

Had them at No. 11 last week, so dropped them five spots.

I can't understand Rhode Island rather than Providence. Rhode Island plays in a terrible league, is about 30 spots worse than Providence in RPI, and lost to them in head to head. Providence is the third best team in the second best league.

16-5, 8-2 in a competitive conference. No bad losses, good coach, talented team. But most important: No. 25 could be occupied by about 15 different teams. Try to reserve that spot for a team under the radar. Don't get all worked up about the rankings. It's not science.

I understand it's not a science, gotcha. I just have a hard time seeing people give votes for a list of the best 25 teams in the country to a team that, if the season ended today, would be a bubble team at best while a team like Providence is probably a 5 or 6 seed. Thanks for sharing this every week and being willing to engage.
