The Coaches poll for this week is about as perfect an illustration of the chaos we've seen at the top end of college basketball this season as is possible. Villanova is your new No. 1 team in the country, garnering only 11 of the possible 32 first-place votes in the poll.
Texas started 9-6 overall, 1-2 in the Big 12. But now the Longhorns have won six of their past seven games and built a resume that features five top-50 RPI wins. Shaka Smart says it's just a byproduct of his players "honoring the process." If it continues, the Longhorns will be in the NCAA Tournament.
Gary Parrish, Matt Norlander and Sam Vecenie discuss Norlander's first trip to Allen Fieldhouse, whether Kentucky has turned a corner (even with the loss at Kansas), Buddy Hield's attempt to run away with the Player of the Year awards, Wichita State's dominance of the MVC, Louisville's big opportunity against North Carolina, etc. on the Eye on College Basketball podcast.
