Hoops Blog Poll - wk 14

I may not have submitted my ballot in time for the official poll but here is my ballot.  There were a few significant moves worth noting...

  • UNC leapfrogged Oklahoma - the Tarheals dominated Duke on the road, have a stronger SOS and four wins over RPI top 25 teams.  They are both #1 seeds and I'm not adament about their ranking, but I feel comfortable with this.
  • BIG jump for MIchigan State - I had them ranked too low on my previous ballot and they are making a push for a #1 seed.
  • BIGGER jump for Missouri - After beating Kansas they have established themselves as the second best team in the B12.   Another example of having a team ranked too low last week.

Last week's ballot

 

Dropped Out: Utah St. (#19), Ohio St. (#25).

I really wasn't sure who to rank in the bottom couple spots, but a Big East and SEC representative seemed appropriate.

please share your thoughts...
