“We’re a blog of many talents, but ranking the top 25 college basketball teams isn’t necessarily one of them.” – Me, Patrick Norton, two weeks ago.

After Villanova, Virginia and Purdue, last week’s one, two and three seeds, lost throughout the week, we saw a considerable shakeup to our top 25. The Kansas Jayhawks saw a ten spot drop from our most recent rankings after another loss, this time to Baylor. Meanwhile, Rhode Island jumped up six spots, but Clemson experienced the largest incline with an eight spot leap. As for Oklahoma, the Sooners and Trae Young are holding onto a top 25 spot for dear life, while the Kentucky Wildcats succumbed to their self-inflicted wounds and were dropped from consideration completely.
