Now that football season has ended, basketball is in full swing. Since the last post there have been big changes in the Top 25. There are still four undefeated teams in the Top 25; #5 Wichita State, #3 Wisconsin, #2 Syracuse and #1 Arizona. Also, in the top ranks, there are still some teams that don’t deserve the spots. These teams include teams such as Duck and Kansas. They were highly ranked to start the season but have not lived up to those standards and are still ranked. There are teams that have played to the level to earn a spot but because of the prestige of the other programs it is harder for them to be knocked out of the rankings.
