RCT College Basketball Top 25 Week 8 - 1/27/14

It's ok guys... the RCT Top 25 poll is here. - Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Our weekly attempt to make sense of the College Basketball hierarchy.

We have a few huge movers in each direction this week.

Michigan put everyone on notice last week, and then followed it up with another great week.  Creighton rocked Villanova to announce its own arrival.
