Thoughts:

  • While Kentucky's strength of schedule isn't as good as some of the other teams on this list, we reward college basketball's last remaining undefeated with the top spot this week.
  • Ohio State had two huge wins this week in the Big Ten, defeating Purdue and Wisconsin to work their way back into the Big Ten. The Buckeyes are now 3-3 in conference.
  • No one had a worse week than Purdue, who dropped back-to-back games to Ohio State and Northwestern, to fall to 2-3 in the Big Ten.

Dropped Out: Temple (#16)

Welcome: Ohio State (#12)

Maybe Next Week: Temple, Missouri, Pittsburgh, Northern Iowa

By Conference: Big East 4, Big Ten 4, Big 12 3, SEC 2, ACC 2, Mountain West 1
