CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WDRB) — It was not a tumultuous week in the men’s Associated Press college basketball Top 25 poll — unless you were Ohio State and Louisville.

The Buckeyes, Cardinals and Washington were the only Top 25 teams to lose — and Ohio State and U of L lost to ranked teams.

Translation: Don’t expect much movement.

My ballot: 

  1. Gonzaga (13-1) — I believe the Zags are going to be here on top for awhile.
  2. Duke (11-1) — The team to beat in the ACC.
  3. Kansas (10-2) — The team to beat in the Big 12.
  4. Ohio State (11-2) — The team to beat in the Big 10 — maybe.
  5. Louisville (11-2) — No major penalty for an overtime loss at Rupp.
  6. Auburn (12-0) — Still waiting for the Tigers to play a Top 25 team. Thinking this is too high.
  7. Oregon (11-2) — Challenge week for the Ducks — at Colorado and Utah.
  8. Memphis (11-1) — Who needs James Wiseman?
  9. Michigan (10-3) — Wolverines visit Michigan State Sunday.
  10. Maryland (11-2) — The Terps needed time to shake Bryant.
  11. Baylor (9-1) — I don’t understand why the Bears have only played 10 games.
  12. Butler (12-1) — The best team in Indiana.
  13. Villanova (9-2) — The Wildcats host Xavier Monday.
  14. West Virginia (11-1) — Bob Huggins is a treasure.
  15. Michigan State (10-3) — The Spartans are figuring it out.
  16. Florida State (11-2) — The Seminoles come to the KFC Yum! Center Saturday.
  17. San Diego State (13-0) — Making Kawhi Leonard proud.
  18. Kentucky (9-3)— Still a solid bet to win the SEC.
  19. Dayton (10-2) — Anthony Grant doing better than Alabama.
  20. Penn State (11-2) — The Nittany Lions will finish in the upper half of the Big Ten.
  21. Virginia (10-2) — The Cavaliers had to scramble to beat Navy Sunday. I watched.
  22. Wichita State (11-1) — Gregg Marshall has the Shockers back on the radar.
  23. Texas Tech (9-3) — Probably not good enough to threaten Kansas in the Big 12.
  24. DePaul (12-1) — Mark Aguirre must be proud.
  25. Iowa (10-3) — The Hawkeyes have to do it without Jordan Bohannon.
