SB Nation Power 16 Ballot: Week 1

The excellent SB Nation college basketball blog Searching for Billy Edelin will be putting together a SB Nation-wide college basketball power ratings over the next 10 weeks. We will be participating in the voting this season, even though - barring a 14 or 15 game winning streak and/or an ACC Tournament Championship - BC won't even sniff the Top 16 this season.

Ballots will be due every Tuesday, and the week's compiled Power Ratings will be published on Thursdays.

Here is how we voted this week, and here is the compiled results for week 1. Let us know your thoughts on who we missed and we'll try harder next week.
