    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 poll releasing next Monday, February 19th.      After a short hiatus for internal reasons, we are back this week with the College Pride Press Top 25! It seems we picked the right time to make our dramatic return, as a whole host of upper-echelon teams suffered defeats over the past seven days. Several of them also took the dreaded home loss, included both teams that occupy our top two spots. However, when looking at the big picture, there are no other strong choices to be at the top of our poll. Those teams, as they have been for much of the season, are Villanova and Virginia. Let’s take a look at the rest of our poll:       Villanova (23-2) lost to St. John’s, 75-79; def. Butler, 86-75. Woah. Like, seriously. St. John’s? At home? They say every team is entitled to one inexplicable performance, and that was Read MoreRead More »

    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 are just the teams that managed to keep their ranking in our new poll. Five teams fell out from last week, including Kentucky after they took a home loss to Florida. The NCAA tournament can’t get here soon enough! Before we get there, however, we’ve got a few more weeks and a few more polls to enjoy. Here’s how we stack up college basketball this week:       Villanova (18-1, LW: 1) def. Georgetown, 88-56; def. Connecticut, 81-61. Though neither of those programs are what they used to be, Villanova should be satisfied with their resounding wins last week. Their three-point barrage is a thing of beauty. It’ll be unleashed against Providence and Marquette next.   Virginia (18-1, LW: 3) def. Georgia Tech 64-48; def. Wake Forest, 59-49. Virginia took care of business to remain on top of the ACC. They have by far the top scoring defense in Read MoreRead More »

    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 ranked teams from last week lost. At this point, there isn’t really a point in putting these conundrums into words. That many teams losing has become the norm, not the exception. And the game’s better for that. Anyways, let’s see how our writers rank the top twenty-five teams in the nation:       Villanova (16-1, LW: 1) def. Xavier, 89-65; def. St. John’s, 78-71. Villanova holds at the top spot after a strong week. Smacking Xavier was particularly impressive. You’ll have to excuse old Big East fans if they get nostalgic this week; Jalen Brunson and co. will be playing at Georgetown, then at Connecticut.   Wichita State (15-2, LW: 2) def. East Carolina, 95-60; def. Tulsa, 72-69. The Shockers pounded ECU, but then had trouble against Tulsa, needing hot shooting from Landry Shamet and Connor Frankamp to secure the victory. SMU comes to Koch Arena on Wednesday. On Read MoreRead More »
