Rk Team Last Wk Rise/Fall High/Low Comment
1 Kansas 1 - 1/3 When your two best players go 5-for-23 from the field and you still beat the No. 14 team in the country by double-digits on their home floor, you know you've got something special going. Team: Home | Stats
2 Kentucky 3 (+1) 1/6 With Vandy nipping at the Wildcats' heels in the SEC East, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins might need a few more double-double performances like they both had against 'Bama.Team: Home | Stats
3 Syracuse 4 (+1) /25 The Orange take a step closer to No. 1 after putting a Super Bowl Sunday beating on Cincinnati in front of over 11,000 disappointed Bearcat fans.Team: Home | Stats
4 Villanova 2 (-2) 2/10 Despite the loss to Georgetown over the weekend, Scottie Reynolds and the Wildcats showed their resiliency in a convincing win at West Virginia on Monday night.Team: Home | Stats
5 Purdue 5 - 3/13 Since their 2-3 start in the Big Ten, the Boilermakers have recovered with six straight wins, including Tuesday night's impressive performance in East Lansing.Team: Home | Stats
6 Georgetown 7 (+1) 6/20 The Hoyas are looking at a potential No. 2 seed in the Big Dance, but tough matchups against Syracuse, Louisville and West Virginia still remain on the schedule. Team: Home | Stats
7 Kansas State 9 (+2) /17 Frank Martin's team earned a big road sweep last week to regain momentum in the Big 12, with the 'Cats seeking another pair of wins this week at home vs. Colorado and Nebraska.Team: Home | Stats
8 West Virginia 6 (-2) 6/11 The Mountaineers aren't turning out to be a Big East title contender like we thought they might be after winning the 76 Classic back in late November.Team: Home | Stats
9 Ohio State 13 (+4) /20 With John Wall's numbers taking a slight dip, Evan Turner has reemerged as the favorite to win Player of the Year -- and that's after breaking bones in his back two months ago.Team: Home | Stats
10 Gonzaga 16 (+6) /25 Even though there wasn't much talk about the Bulldogs' victory at Memphis last weekend, it certainly gives the 'Zags another quality road win to flash at the selection committee.Team: Home | Stats
11 Wisconsin 11 - /22 In what might be the only loss at the Kohl Center this season, Illinois put an end to Bo Ryan's 51-0 home record against unranked Big Ten teams with a stunning upset.Team: Home | Stats
12 Duke 12 - 5/13 Although Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith have had to pick up the slack for Kyle Singler, the Dukies should prevail in Chapel Hill this week against a demoralized Carolina squad.Team: Home | Stats
13 Michigan State 8 (-5) 2/16 After starting conference play at 9-0, Tom Izzo's club might not even win the Big Ten regular-season title following back-to-back losses to Illinois and Purdue in a three-day span.Team: Home | Stats
14 New Mexico 14 - /24 The Lobos know how to put a winning streak together, first starting the season 12-0 and now stringing together seven wins after surviving San Diego State in overtime.Team: Home | Stats
15 Butler 17 (+2) /25 Congratulations to Brad Stevens and his guys, who earned a share of the Horizon League title and extended their win streak to 13 with Monday's victory over Loyola.Team: Home | Stats
16 Texas 10 (-6) 1/16 Three weeks ago, the Longhorns were enjoying their first No. 1 ranking in the AP poll -- and now they're looking no better than a second-round team in the NCAA tournament.Team: Home | Stats
17 Vanderbilt 20 (+3) /22 The loss at Georgia last weekend had us questioning Kevin Stallings' club for a minute before it went out and put a beat down on in-state rival Tennessee.Team: Home | Stats
18 Brigham Young 15 (-3) /22 The Cougars' loss at UNLV this past weekend has stirred up the Mountain West race quite a bit, with Dave Rose and company now sitting in a three-way tie for first.Team: Home | Stats
19 Northern Iowa 24 (+5) /25 Ben Jacobson's crew got some revenge on Wichita State before rallying past a pesky Southern Illinois team last weekend to make it five consecutive wins for UNI.Team: Home | Stats
20 Georgia Tech 23 (+3) /25 Squeaking out a two-point win at home over N.C. State has the Yellow Jackets looking vulnerable this week with road games slated at Miami and Wake Forest.Team: Home | Stats
21 Temple 18 (-3) /23 Getting blown out at Richmond won't make the Owls the favorite to win the Atlantic 10 regular-season crown, though an at-large bid should still be in order for Fran Dunphy's kids.Team: Home | Stats
22 Baylor 19 (-3) /24 Losing at Texas A&M is nothing to be ashamed about, but beating Missouri at home this weekend would at least help preserve some of the Bears' confidence before March.Team: Home | Stats
23 Tennessee 21 (-2) 8/23 Suffering a season sweep to in-state rival Vandy will be tough on Bruce Pearl and his players -- especially after the way they got embarrassed Tuesday night in Nashville.Team: Home | Stats
24 Cornell 25 (+1) /25 The class of the Ivy League knows how to put the ball in the basket, averaging over 75 points a game and shooting over 40 percent from three as a team. Team: Home | Stats
25 Pittsburgh 22 (-3) /25 Jamie Dixon's team earned its keep in the Power Rankings for another week after disposing of city rival Robert Morris, expected to win the Northeast this season.Team: Home | Stats
