NCAAM Power Rankings: Week 1

Each week on Tuesdays, I will be posting my power rankings from all the power conferences including the A10, plus the top three teams in the WCC with one wild card. Also at the end of each ranking, I will add a few remarks on different team’s movements.


1)         Rhode Island

2)         VCU

3)         St. Bonaventure

4)         Davidson

5)         St. Louis

6)         St. Joes

7)         Dayton

8)         La Salle

9)         Richmond

10)       George Mason

11)        GW

12)       UMass

13)       Fordham

14)       Duquesne

St Bonaventure sits at #3 even with an upset loss to Niagara because they played without their best player Jaylen Adams.

St Louis had a great showing in the 2k classic beating VTech, but falling to Providence in a competitive championship game. They are at #5 for a reason.


1)         Wichita State

2)         Cincinnati

3)          Temple

4)          SMU

5)          Tulane

6)          UConn

7)           UCF

8)          Houston

9)          Memphis

10)         Tulsa

11)          ECU

12)          USF

Temple wins the Charleston Classic to start the season off right, after the disappointing season they had last year. Temple is #3 in the AAC after the week they had.

Tulane was the worst team in the conference last year, but after a solid week I have them at #5 at least until they lose.

Houston and UCF had the opposite of expected first weeks dropping them in the rankings.


1)           Duke

2)           Miami

3)           Notre Dame

4)           UNC

5)            Louisville

6)            Virginia

7)            NC State

8)            Virginia Tech

9)            Syracuse

10)          Boston College

11)           Georgia Tech

12)           FSU

13)           Clemson

14)           Wake Forest

15)           Pittsburgh

Pitt and Wake are terrible, as the rest of the conference is pretty straight forward.

Big 12

1)            Kansas

2)            West Virginia

3)            Texas

4)            Oklahoma

5)            TCU

6)            Baylor

7)            Texas Tech

8)            Oklahoma State

9)            Kansas State

10)          Iowa State

Iowa State starts the season off on an awful note to find themselves at the bottom.

Texas Tech dismantled Northwestern in the HOF tip off Naismith championship, but it was not enough for them to jump up to the top in my opinion.

Big East

1)            Villanova

2)            Xavier

3)            Seton Hall

4)            Creighton

5)            Providence

6)            Butler

7)             St. Johns

8)            Depaul

9)            Marquette

10)          Georgetown

Creighton took out two top 25 teams already, and look to beat their third in the CBE HOF Classic championship Tuesday Night over #22 Baylor. However, the top three teams are too good to be passed by Creighton right now.

Big Ten

1)            Michigan State

2)            Minnesota

3)            Purdue

4)            Maryland

5)            Michigan

6)            Northwestern

7)            Penn State

8)            Illinois

9)            Ohio State

10)          Wisconsin

11)           Iowa

12)          Rutgers

13)           Indiana

14)           Nebraska

MSU and Minnesota battle for the top spot as MSU comes out on top barely.

Iowa had a high ranking until they were upset by ULL on Monday.


1)             Arizona

2)             USC

3)             UCLA

4)             Oregon

5)             Utah

6)             ASU

7)             Oregon State

8)             Stanford

9)            Washington

10)          Colorado

11)          Washington State

12)          California


1)            St. Marys

2)            Gonzaga

3)            BYU

WC     San Diego

UCLA has struggled early this year with the talent they possess, but they are still #3.

ASU sky rockets after a great week to open up their season.


1)           Florida

2)          Kentucky

3)          Texas A&M

4)          Alabama

5)          Arkansas

6)         Ole Miss

7)         Georgia

8)         South Carolina

9)         Missouri

10)       LSU

11)        Auburn

12)       Mississippi St.

13)       Tennessee

14)       Vanderbilt

Florida and Kentucky are basically tied at the top, but the Gators surpass the Wildcats this week.

Arkansas has turned into a legitimate contender heading into the PK80 later this week.
