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.
Finally, there is some stability at the top of the coaches' poll. North Carolina remained the No. 1 team in the country this week, following a stretch of five straight weeks where the No. 1 position changed hands.
Maryland beat Iowa on Thursday and, by extension, recorded its first victory over an opponent with a top-50 RPI. So the Terrapins are now 18-3 overall, 7-2 in the Big Ten. And they're ranked sixth in the updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
Arkansas snapped Texas A&M's 10-game winning streak on Wednesday by beating the Aggies 74-71 at Bud Walton Arena. So Billy Kennedy's team is 17-3 overall, 7-1 in the SEC. And they're now ranked eighth in the updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
Iowa State beat Kansas 85-72 late Monday at Hilton Coliseum to improve to 16-4. The Cyclones now have six top-50 KenPom wins and just one loss outside of the top 40. They're ranked seventh in the updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
