1 Duke - They've been the best team thus far
2 North Carolina - Good pair of road wins, moves them near the top
3 Texas - Speaking of road wins; just how good might they be with Durant?
4 Butler - Bulldogs have been impressive and deserve some respect
5 Kansas - Jayhawks take down a pair of the PAC-10's best
6 Memphis - Get a big test tomorrow night at the Garden
7 UCLA - I thought it might be awhile until the Bruins lost, but I still think they are good and just didn't have the guts to keep them #1
8 Washington State - Would you ever really expect a win at Baylor to be considered impressive? 9 Georgetown - Win at ODU avenged last year's defeat, but Hoyas don't look as sharp as others.
10 Michigan State - I wilted to the pressure
11 Pittsburgh - BCS Busters will be heard from on the hardwood
12 Marquette - Only thing that hasn't gone the Warriors favor was the Maui Final with Duke. Big one on the weekend with Wisconsin
13 Xavier - First feature in Stealing Cinderellas absolutely hammered Belmont
14 Indiana - Hoosiers got back on track this week
15 Gonzaga - That was quite the road trip for the Zags
16 Louisville - Really struggling with the injuries but gutted out a win over a decent Miami (Ohio) team on Sunday
17 Tennessee - We like Bruce Pearl. We like the Volunteers. But they've got to pick it up a little bit.
18 Texas A&M - Aggies had the chance to be well up the food chain. But just absolutely let a golden opportunity get away
19 BYU - One loss Cougars may be a surprise. But the one loss was to Carolina.
20 Miami - The Hurricanes are vastly improved and stayed perfect with an easy win over St. John's yesterday
21 Clemson - The Tigers have done this before, and we've been fooled
22 Wisconsin - I think the Badgers are better than that showing in Cameron, but we'll find out with Marquette on the horizon
23 Connecticut - Huskies may not deserve this much credit after failing against Gonzaga in their backyard
24 Vanderbilt - Commodores remain unbeaten and maybe one of those teams that is ready to have one of those special seasons
25 Sam Houston State - Truly we just wanted to type BearKats here and make you think I spelled it wrong
