My College Basketball Top 25 – Post Thanksgiving Edition (Updated)

[Now updated with MadZee’s Top 25]

By my count, six teams in my top 12 got at least one loss this week.  To be expected with the number of ranked teams playing each other this week in various holiday tournaments.  I think it’s also far enough into the season that the teams which are still undefeated deserve some due.  So, big shake up this week.  Also, a note about the Duke loss.  When Kentucky lost to an unranked team at home, I punished them by moving them to 25 in order to make them work their way up the rankings.  I won’t do the same to Duke.  I’m keeping them in the Top 10.  I am, however, taking Michigan State out of the Top 25 for a bit.  They’re probably a top 5 team when they’re right, but that’s not the case right now.

For this week’s ranking, I’ve eliminated any two loss teams from the rankings.  I suspect there are some of those teams which would deserve to be more highly ranked than some of the other teams in the Top 25 this week.  I am sure that this will sort itself out in the next two weeks, because there are a lot of games coming up which are going to bring the number of undefeateds down.
