Locked out again

March is here. Well, it almost is. 

On Saturday, the world of college basketball watched history be made as each of the top-six teams lost. No. 9 Texas Tech also lost, and we figured a ton of changes would go down when the new Associated Press Top 25 dropped on Monday. In total, 11 ranked teams lost, eight of the first nine programs lost, and things turned into madness before the calendar even flipped to March. 

Well, things sure did change. One thing that didn’t change was the top two teams as Gonzaga and Arizona stayed 1-2, respectively. 

With the NCAA Tournament right around the corner and Selection Sunday in less than two weeks, teams are doing whatever it takes to improve their resumes and try to steal a bid. 

After a topsy turvy weekend, check out the newest AP Top 25 results

  1. Gonzaga 
  2. Arizona 
  3. Baylor 
  4. Duke 
  5. Auburn 
  6. Kansas 
  7. Kentucky 
  8. Purdue 
  9. Providence 
  10. Wisconsin 
  11. Villanova 
  12. Texas Tech 
  13. Tennessee 
  14. Arkansas 
  15. Houston 
  16. USC 
  17. UCLA 
  18. Connecticut 
  19. St. Mary’s 
  20. Illinois 
  21. Texas 
  22. Murray State 
  23. Ohio State 
  24. Iowa 
  25. Alabama 

Others Receiving Votes: Boise State 56, Davidson 20, Colorado State 19, South Dakota State 12, Notre Dame 9, LSU 7, Michigan State 6, San Diego State 5, Marquette 4, Iowa State 4, North Texas 3, Vermont 2, Northern Iowa 1

Things look a lot different. 

For the Mountain West Conference, no teams are in the Top 25. Wyoming is all of the way out and didn’t even receive one single vote after losses to New Mexico and Colorado State, although that Lobos loss was brutal for the Cowboys. 

Boise State is right on the cusp, and Colorado State and San Diego State both received votes. At the moment, three teams in the MWC look to get bids, and there is a chance that four programs earn spots in the Field of 68. 

As the conference tournaments begin to take place, a lot can change for the MWC and college basketball as a whole. Stay tuned. The madness is just beginning.
