This week in College Basketball, we’ve seen a good amount of change in the top 10, and there are some serious squads that we as fans need to take seriously. We have seen Kentucky retake their reigns in the SEC with a dominant and late second-half dynamo against SEC Rival Florida, and Michigan State, who is without their primed leader in Joshua Langford, struggled offensively and dropped an egg in overtime to unranked Indiana led by NBA prospect Romeo Langford.
Duke and Tennessee had equally impressive weeks leading to infallible victories on Saturday afternoon. While Michigan struggled as well against Iowa, and other ranked teams like NC State quickly displayed why they have no business being in the top 25.
The wheel of parity keeps on twisting and turning, and as we move another week closer to the conference championship tournaments across the nation, our initial expectations of each week just keep going awry. That’s what makes this great game so much fun.
With that being said, here’s the updated and tweaked Associated Press Top 25 for this past week in College Basketball.

The top 25 teams in the Associated Press’ College Basketball poll are determined on a point-based system. First place votes are noted in parentheses. A team receives 25 points for a first-place vote, 24 for a second-place vote and so on through one point for the 25th-place vote and prior ranking.
