Others on watch list: St. John's, Seton Hall, Wake Forest, California, Cincinnati, Arizona St., Minnesota, Mississippi St., Pittsburgh

New this week: Kansas St., Georgetown, Butler, St. Mary's, Temple
Dropped out: Wisconsin, Florida St., Washington, Cincinnati, Vanderbilt

Comments:

Syracuse: Confidence and playing for 40 minutes is so rare this early season - and leads to the best record in the nation.
Kentucky: John Wall is special and te results keep rolling in - but they need to learn to handle the ball and play for an entire game, otherwise the ball eventually will fall for the other team on the last second shot.
Kansas: My boys, you are talented, but in my class there is homework to be done.  Now wipe the frosting off your faces and start kicking some noteworthy behinds. 
Kansas St.: With so many top teams losing, Kansas State quietly sneaks into my top 10 with beating Xavier and UNLV this week. Both by 15 points.  Xavier beating Cincinnati today made this feat look even more impressive.
New Mexico: Another quicker sneaker-upper - puts Texas A&M into the bag and no one can ignore that 10-0 record any more.
Georgetown: Georgetown is finally not overrated - beating Butler and Washington in the same weak is about as good as it gets in the early season. 
Villanova: I know a lot of people think that numbers are no good for anything, but it is worth mentioning that Temple's Pomeroy rating is higher than Nova's (33 to 42) without the last game.  Temple wins a rivalry game - and 'Nova needs to figure out what makes that rating so low if they want to confidently handle the Big East schedule. This might be the learning experience that will make them great.
Florida: No shame in losing to Syracuse - they tried their best.  It would have been enough for most other teams.
Butler: A win over Ohio State proves that Butler's preseason credits were solid - and there is no shame in losing to Georgetown.

Selected comments

Duke was impressive against Connecticut, especially with the tough defense and aggressivity.  Sheyer has really stepped up as a point-guard/shooting guard combo. They won the best pre-season tournament this week and decisively so.  The Dukies have it again and they showed it this week.

Purdue
beat a very impressive Tennesse team and a good St Joseph team in the Paradise Jam, winning another strong tournament. 

Gonzaga
has played two great games against Cincinnati and Wisconsin this week, showing staying power against what might have been the two most underrated teams in the country.

Cincy is highly athletic and has the will power - they are emerging as one of the powers in a weakened Big East conference. 

I liked what I saw from Wisconsin , especially while beating Maryland decisively.   Hughes and Bohannon carry the team as seniors - and seniors on a major team is a rarity nowadays. 

Texas A&M
- can you say underrated?  They waxed two highly ranked teams this week - Clemson decisively, Minnesota in a tight one.  I only caught a few minutes of the Clemson game but the Aggies looked as good as any other top 10 team. Pomeroy ratings #8, score ratings #4 - who says they are not top 10?  I can't find a reason.

Florida beats in-state rival Florida State and moves on to beat Michigan State. 

Florida State beats Alabama and Marquette this week, with the only loss to Florida at their place, they have done a LOT more than Kentucky by far.

Portland rolls over UCLA - UCLA is down, but 74-47? - then moves onto beating Minnesota.  They lose to West Virginia - but most teams I could have ranked at 19 instead would lose to them, too.

UNLV
- wins over Nevada and Souther Illinois are nice, but Louisville looks really spiffy on that unbeaten resume.

I couldn't spend as much time as usual on my rankings this week, so I relied on my computer numbers a bit more than usual (no, not the RPI).  Wich is why Michigan State is #2 and UNC is #6, if you must ask.

This was a tough week to rank - does it ever get easier? 

The top spot was a decision between UConn and Pitt.  I believe they are the top two teams in the country, and Pittsburgh has shown to be better this week. 

I am not sold on Oklahoma as the third best team in the country - but who else would you put there?  They have lost to a Texas team that is probably much better than their record.  Is this the beginning of the resurgence of Texas, or the fall of Oklahoma? We will find out - Oklahoma plays Kansas and Missouri soon.

Michigan State is blown out by a resurging Purdue, but I think that is more due to Purdue wanting to make a statement than Michigan State slipping. 

Speaking of slipping, Maryland storms the court after defeating a UNC team that seems to have lost their swagger - and their defensive ability.

Villanova seems to be peaking at the right time.  They won 8 of their last 9, the only loss coming to a very underrated West Virginia team on the road.

Arizona State's last three are all great wins - the Sun Devils are finally living up to the pre-season hype.

Duke shows that they can score at Wake Forest's expense. 

Purdue is on a roll, thumping Michigan State.  Question is - will Hummel be healthy?  If he will, this Purdue team will be a force in the tourney.  If he won't - they can still win a couple games. 

Missouri and Kansas are good and underappreciated teams, they drop in my poll mostly because others rise up.

Clemson puts 29 on Maryland to prove that the loss to Virginia was a fluke.  At which Maryland decides to prove that they are no pushover by defeating the #3 team in the country. 

My Illini, what to do with you?  In Penn State coach Ed DeChellis' words, "we set the game back a few decades" in that horrible nightmare of frustrating futility that occurred between Illinois and Penn State on Thursday.  Two teams that couldn't find any offense still remembered how to play defense, resulting in the lowest scoring game ever played in the Assembly Hall, and in the last four years in the entire NCAA Division I. Just as I was about to conclude that Illinois' offense has gone to the toilet, they go on the road and play a beautifully executed offensive game against Ohio State - and forget how to play defense. They manage to win a close one.  Illinois has all the elements of a great team - can we have them all in the same game at the same time, please?

West Virginia is one of the most underrated teams in the country.  They put decisive victories on Villanova and Notre Dame as of late, and their late losses all come to very good teams.  They will be a force in the tourney.

Welcome to the Week 14 People's Poll!    

The People's Poll is made up of 40+ College Basketball fans who want their opinions heard! Voters give their take over the weeks action on the main CBB board with the results tallied here every Monday. Each week's poll reflects games played through Sunday. If you'd like to check out each voters ballot, here you go . Even if you're not a regular voter, look for the People's Poll voting thread every week to give your take! You may end up in the poll!

So without further adieu.. I give you the Week 14 People's Poll!

"Thabeet looks like a mad man, 25 points, 20 rebounds, 9 Blocks?? He's really giving Uconn the extra help they need after they lost Dyson." - hoosierguy1019

2. (4) Oklahoma (E) 947 25-1          HR-1 LR-4          AP- CP- GP-

" 11-0 start in the big 12 is very impressive, almost as impressive as Griffin’s 40 point 20 rebound game." - reamo37

North Carolina Tar Heels logo 3. (4) North Carolina (E) 936 23-2          HR-1 LR-4          AP- CP- GP-

Pittsburgh Panthers logo 4. Pittsburgh (E) 887 23-2          HR-3 LR-4          AP- CP- GP-

" Beating West Virginia or Cincinnati at home isn't fantastic, but beating both by double digits with a game against #1 on Monday to look to is fantastic, especially when very few teams seem to regularly take care of business." - pittbaster

Michigan St. Spartans logo 5. Michigan State (+2) 810 20-4          HR-5 LR-12         AP- CP- GP-

"Quietly racking up wins while others fall. The only team that can possibly push aside one of the top 4 and grab a #1 seed in March." - ThaBadge

Memphis Tigers logo 6. Memphis (+3) 801 22-3          HR-5 LR-10          AP- CP- GP-

" This winning streak in conference is getting ridiculous, maybe they should move to another conference." - agsmith46

7. Louisville (-2) 724 19-5          HR-5 LR-20         AP- CP- GP-

"Rough outing against Notre Dame, but it was more the Irish reminding us they have talent than Louisville playing terribly (although the Cards were not ready for that team)." - pittbaster

8. Wake Forest (E) 627 19-4          HR-5 LR-18         AP- CP- GP-

"A top 5 team if they play to their potential EACH game." - Go_Xavier_56

" Another bad week for the Blue Devils who have lost 4 of their past [6]." - Go_Xavier_56

12.Villanova (+1) 561 20-5          HR-7 LR-21          AP- CP- GP-

"You've got to show up for the road games too.  You can lose to good teams away from home--just don't get blown out in the process." - whachoosay

13. Clemson (-2) 479 20-4          HR-7 LR-NR         AP- CP- GP-

"When you press for most of the game like they do, some teams are gonna beat it and beat you, and other teams just will get flustered and fold under the pressure." - agsmith46

Kansas Jayhawks logo 14.Kansas (+1) 457 20-5          HR-8 LR-21          AP- CP- GP-

"Very rare to see a Bill Self team toss away a double-digit second half lead and lose like the Jayhawks did at Missouri last week, but the Tigers are much, much better than they have been the past three years." - wachoosay

Illinois Fighting Illini logo 15. Illinois (+2) 433 21-5          HR-8 LR-21          AP- CP- GP-

"They ended the game at Northwestern on a 17-2 run to win the game after being down by 14 with six minutes left. If they can score like that all the time along with their stingy defense, they will go real far in the tourney." - reamo37

16. Arizona State (+5) 365 20-5          HR-7 LR-NR         AP- CP- GP-

"Swept UCLA, when was the last time that happened? You don't want to play them right now." - brwhite23

Breaking down the rankings:

Another turbulent week in college basketball, with many upsets and many ranked teams splitting a win and a loss.

After a few weeks of big changes in the top positions, this week our top four are unchanged. Michigan State and Memphis move up behind a string of wins. Missouri, who just entered the poll last week, makes the top 10 this week as one of only a handful of teams winning both of their games this week.  Arizona State also makes a big jump.  Washingon and LSU enter the poll behind strong performances in their conferences.  Dayton found favor with many voters by beating Xavier. The big losers of the week both on court and in the poll are Duke, UCLA, Syracuse and Butler; Louisville, Clemson and Xavier drop slightly.
