RCT College Basketball Top 25 Week 5 - 1/6/14

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

Big movement this week. Kansas dropped 5 spots didn't even come close to the biggest drop. Two of the three teams that fell out of the poll fell so far that they didn't receive a single vote in this week's poll.

Future editions of the poll will come out Tuesday morning, but will still reflects votes taken on Monday.
