Kansas keeps top spot in RCT Top 25

Kansas still is the unanimous choice for the top team in the land.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Championship Week is upon us.  Most teams in the Top 25 are positioning themselves for the NCAA tournament, and they get to try to run through their conferences one last time on the way to guaranteeing their spot in the field.  We still have a couple editions left of the poll (or at least this one), so we get to weigh in on whether Louisville and/or SMU are good enough to have been included.  There is some disagreement as to whether we should do another edition after the conference championships, so we'll let you the reader weigh in down below in the poll.

Kansas holds on to the unanimous number one, but there isn't much consensus after that.  Virginia is the only other team to be Top 3 on every ballot, and they hold onto the second spot again. With no teams moving in or out of the poll this week, there really aren't any new tidbits to talk about.
