College Pride Press Top 25 – Week 15

Note: This article only takes into account games through last Sunday. It was initially set to post Monday morning before our unanticipated maintenance break postponed its release. As you can see, several of our top teams have already taken losses since Monday. This will be reflected in our Week 16

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Twelve

Another week of college basketball, another slew of salacious upsets. It feels kind of numb at this point, as these results have become expected. Even still, there were some shocking results, such as Wichita State losing at home to SMU and Texas Tech getting blasted by Iowa State. And those

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Eleven

Well, were you expecting anything different? The level of parity in college basketball is RIDICULOUS. Not only are ranked teams falling when they have to hit the road (West Virginia, Miami, and many others), but they’re also being defeated at home (Michigan State, Arizona State, and more!). Twelve of our

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Ten

Words don’t exist to properly describe the ridiculousness that gripped college basketball over the past seven days. Over half of our prior poll lost, many of them twice. Seven of our top ten teams from last week’s poll took an L and a predictable tumble. Among those to lose, shockingly,

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Nine

  A Happy New Year to all of those in the college basketball universe! Here at College Pride Press, we value the holidays and the joys they bring. That’s why the poll is coming out today instead of yesterday. Regardless, it’s clear that conference play has already brought chaos to the

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Seven

  Well, so much for last week being slow. A multitude of ranked teams fell on Saturday, creating hysteria for our voters. It seems that after finals, some of our ranked teams came out flat. Several of these games ended in dramatic fashion, such as Indiana’s upset win over Notre Dame

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Six

Bedlam. That was last week. Five of our top ten teams lost. Some in games you wouldn’t predict in a million years. It’s clear that Christmas came early for college basketball fans, as chaos dominated. We had Florida get trounced by their rival then inexplicably lose to a mid-major. Kansas

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Five

Oftentimes, the couple weeks following Thanksgiving can be a slow period in college basketball. The high competition of the early-season tournaments can have some teams looking for reprieve in smaller opponents. Finals are coming up, too, which means teams will usually go at least a week without contesting a game.

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week Three

  Last week, the college basketball year truly began, thanks to the Champions’ Classic. Those two battles brought us high-level competition just days into the season. In addition, a couple other ranked teams also saw themselves get beat, or nearly. This includes Northwestern and USC, one of which clung to a

College Pride Press Top 25: Week Two

  The first weekend is in the past. As per the usual, there wasn’t a ton of drama. Most teams played schools from lower conferences, which served as punching bags and measuring sticks. Though some teams struggled to work through growing pains, such as Kentucky, there shouldn’t be a lot of

Way Way Way Too Early Top 25

Well the  2016-2017 season is officially over. It was a crazy season with tons of twist and turns that come with every college basketball season. In order to help our post NCAA Tournament depression we decided to rank the teams for next year. It is tough to predict where some

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week 18

After eighteen grueling weeks, the regular season has concluded! There does not seem to be a clear cut team that's a step ahead of everybody else entering the postseason. Arguments can easily be made both for and against teams like Kansas, UNC, Gonzaga, UCLA, and any other squad you think

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week 17

  Did anyone see that coming? Gonzaga, who looked like the most dominant team in the country for virtually the entire year, lost their final regular season game to a WCC team that wasn’t even St. Mary’s. While the defeat ends the Bulldogs’ quest for an undefeated season, it should not

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week 16

There are only two weeks of regular season basketball left! There's two ways to look at this: with the glass half empty, because college basketball will end soon, or with the glass half full, because it's almost March! Indeed, that remarkable time, which rivals only Christmas in the fun and

College Pride Press Top 25 – Week 15

Frankly, compared to some of the exciting weeks we’ve had this season, last week looked like a bit of a dud. Sure, a handful of ranked teams lost, but Saturday was largely uneventful except for Gonzaga-St. Mary’s, and the only games of note were the Thursday night clashes won by
