RCT Top 25: Top 3 unchanged, ACC still has the most teams

New, 14 comments

Despite some big upsets and comebacks, there was a surprisingly small amount of movement overall.

NCAA Basketball: Baylor at Oklahoma State Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another episode of our poll. Despite the thrilling win on Monday (or maybe because the comeback was necessary), Kansas was unable to move up over Villanova, although they did break the tie with Gonzaga.

We lost a voter for this week, but all ballots received came in prior to the action on Tuesday.

Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Wichita State join the poll this week, replacing Creighton, Butler and USC.

The ACC continues to have the most teams in the poll with 6, with the Big 12 close behind with 5. No other conference has more than 3.

At this point, I think fizzle is immune to criticism of his voting methods, but be sure to let us know what else we’ve done that is crazy in the comments below.
