Kansas rose five spots, jumping a herd of teams and taking the #1 spot. Kansas started the season slow but has turned in 9 consecutive elite performances. Villanova, UCLA and Duke all fell one spot, due to Kansas, and Gonzaga remained #5. Kansas State is now all the way up to 6, they haven’t really played anyone noteworthy other than a neutral game against Maryland – their lone loss of the season. However, they have looked very good against inferior opponents, with 8 elite performances in 11 games. Texas Tech is also entering the top 10 is a bit of a surprise, similar to Kansas State, TTU has played a weak schedule thus far but has looked great in those games. Mid-Majors Middle Tennessee and Monmouth, along with power-seven teams Cincinnati and South Carolina, moved into the top 25.
