Testing 2

Thank you for voting! What an interesting week this became after a Tennessee loss to Oakland and and a Louisville loss to Drexel. It was supposed to be a down week in the excitement, and boy was that wrong. Stunning upsets every day, exciting games, and probably our most divided poll to date. This is what happens when kids have more then one thing on their mind on a hetic finals week. Merry Christmas to everyone and we'll see what this coming week has to offer. In case you missed this week or would like to take a look at the ballots, you can check them here.

Votes
-831, HR -3, LR -14, StDev -1.91, AP -4, Coaches -4,  POM -27

Games Played this week:

   Sat, Dec-18   Win    Loyola MD (4-6)   (99-75) Home

I don't honestly believe that 5 of the nation's top ten teams have a home in the Big East...but right now it's hard to argue with the Hoyas resume, or any of the others up here.  What a "down year" this conference is having! – pittbaster 


 9.  Villanova (+3)(9-1)      

Votes
-647, HR -5, LR -NR, StDev -2.91, AP -8, Coaches -8,  POM -21

Games Played this week:

   Sat, Dec-18   Win    Delaware (5-3)   (78-59) Home

If there's such a thing as a "quiet" top ten team from a major league, Villanova is it this year.  Folks seem to have forgotten about them since they lost that NIT championship game.  They have scary-good guard play, as always, and that will keep them in most games. – pittbaster

Had seven players in double figures in their last game... good depth ... young team that is still learning how to play together for a full game

   Sat, Dec-18   Win    Mississippi Valley St. (1-9)   (85-60) Home

I’m calling this team Schrödinger's Cat(s). They seemingly exist in two states and you never know when you open the box whether you’ll get a dead cats or the much more lively Cats – Logan Big Ears

Votes
-459, HR -7, LR -NR, StDev -3.34, AP -11, Coaches -11,  POM -28

-355, HR -6, LR -NR, StDev -4.62, AP -12, Coaches -12,  POM -15

Games Played this week:

   Sat, Dec-18   Win    Prairie View A&M (1-10)   (90-51) Home

Gained a beat without Izzo on the bench as Summers found his shot and Lucas didn't turn the ball over. – SporTEmINd

Games Played this week:

   Sat, Dec-18   Win    (12)Kansas St. (9-2)   (57-44) Semi-Home

Shellacked Kansas State - proving the pre-season hype was warranted. With Central Florida moving into most polls, their losses are downright respectable – gezemice
