NCAA College Basketball Rankings Week 1

Not much changed in the AP College Basketball Poll in the first week. Only the Gonzaga Bulldogs were able to put up an impressive enough outing to make a move. Gonzaga moved from 12th to 11th after two dominating performances in their opening weekend. As most teams seem to start out with a soft schedule, many of the top teams were easy winners. Amongst the top ten teams only the North Carolina Tarheels and Kansas State Wildcats were victorious by less than 15 points, each team defeated their opponent by 14. The “close call” was enough to cost Kansas State its only first place votes however.

Looking forward to this week’s schedule, two games stand out as the first tests of the season. Kansas State will take on Virginia Tech and Florida will take on Ohio State. Both games will take place on Tuesday evening.

Check out the preseason AP Poll below and let us know who you’ll be watching as the season gets underway.
