Not many changes towards the top of the BTPowerhouse Top 25 poll this week as Kansas keeps its hold on the top spot with Dayton and Gonzaga closely trailing.

The Big Ten beating up on itself again cost the conference a couple spots in the poll again this week. Penn State continued its free fall out of the poll and Iowa dropped out as well.

Elsewhere, the West Virginia Mountaineers welcomed themselves back in and the Eastern Tennessee State Buccaneers found themselves in the poll with an impressive 29-4 overall record and an impressive no. 39 NET ranking.
