How does BTPowerhouse rank college basketball’s best?

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Baylor vs Gonzaga Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It wasn’t quite the chaos that ensued after the Thanksgiving week games, but this week’s poll had plenty of moving and shaking as well. Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan State, and Seton Hall took big tumbles this week, while Baylor and Ohio State continued to rise. The Aztecs of San Diego St and the Purdue Boilermakers make their first appearances in the poll as well.

It is finals week for most programs around the country, but the slate next Saturday will be a fun one with four top-25 matchups. All of the top-5 this week have a road or neutral-site game as well. Take a look at the poll this week.
