College basketball has:
- Two undefeated teams.
- Eight one-loss teams.
- Fifteen two-loss teams.
- Four 15-win teams.
- Eleven 14-win teams.
- Seventeen 13-win teams.
From that group, and even beyond it, there’s a big pool of candidates to consider for the Power Rankings. This week’s list features volatile movement from where things stood on Jan. 3. It’s the most week-over-week change yet. No. 1 stays the same, but three teams dropped out/hopped in. And after the top 10, it gets complicated quickly.
Here are the 19 most impressive teams in college basketball right now. Why 19? Because it’s just enough, especially on the 71st birthday of Steely Dan co-founder Donald Fagen.
⤴️ means a team is higher than where it stood last week, ⤵️ indicates a drop and 🔄 means no change from last Thursday.
Dropped out: Mississippi State, NC State, Ohio State.
