LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Sixteen polls are down, leaving five. Do not look now, but we are closer to March than to January.

As Kentucky conducts an autopsy of all Tennessee hot spots, it is time to get the new number 1 of my ballot at the Associated Press Top 25 University Basketball.

1. Duke (23-2) – Why are the Blue Devils not pushing more often?

2. Virginia (22-2) – The Cavaliers seemed better against North Carolina than against Notre Dame.

3. Kentucky (21-4) – Raise your hand if you want to attend a rematch with Duke.

4. Gonzaga (25-2) – I do not like being one of the guys who keeps the schedule against the Zags, but …

5. Tennessee (23-2) – The Flights must show something to the skeptics at LSU on Saturday.

6. Michigan (23-3) – In Minnesota Thursday, home of Michigan State Sunday. Difficult week for wolverines.

8. North Carolina (20-5) – First round of Duke rivalry in Cameron on Wednesday.

9. Houston (25-1) – Kelvin Sampson for the President.

17. Purdue (18-7) – Boilermakers are ready to sweep the series of the season against Indiana.

18. Iowa (20-5) – The ball came in when it counts for the Hawkeyes.

19. Iowa State (19-6) – Another team with a shot in the Big 12.

20. Cincinnati (21-4) – No one talks about Bearcats anymore.

21. Virginia Tech (20-5) – The Hokies draw Virginia home Monday night.

22. Villanova (20-6) – The attack on St. John's was not good.

23. Buffalo (22-3) – Impressive victory in Toledo on Friday.

24. Maryland (19-7) – The Terps are inconsistent but very talented.
