The 2013 college basketball rankings have been updated and the Week 15 Coaches Poll is a mess. The Week 15 rankings have five teams receiving first place votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll and four teams receiving first place votes in the AP Top 25 on Monday (Feb. 11). The two polls look nothing alike either, as the basketball season has failed to produce a dominating team.
The top five teams in the Week 15 AP Top 25 are Indiana, Duke, Miami, Michigan, and Gonzaga (in that order). Indiana received 26 first place votes, Duke got 20, Miami has 17, and Gonzaga has two for the first time in school history.
Over in the Week 15 Coaches Poll it is Duke, Indiana, Gonzaga, Miami, and Michigan (in that order). Duke claimed 18 first place votes, Indiana has six, Gonzaga has one, Miami has five, and Michigan has one.
The two polls couldn't even agree on the rest of the top 10, with the coaches elevating Butler up to No. 10 and the writers pushing up Kansas State. There are six new teams in the Coaches Poll, with Cincinnati, Minnesota, Oregon, Missouri, Wichita State and Ole Miss dropping out. In their places are Wisconsin, Marquette, Notre Dame, Colorado State, and Memphis.
Dropping out of the AP top 25 was Creighton, Cincinnati, Minnesota and Missouri. They were replaced by Wisconsin, Memphis, Colorado State, and Kentucky. The Kentucky Wildcats are definitely a team to watch as the freshmen on that team are finally starting to play together.
Gonzaga fans might be a bit frustrated this week because Michigan and Indiana both lost and it failed to give the Bulldogs a boost. To make matters worse, the AP voters pushed Miami ahead of the Zags this week. The 2013 college basketball rankings haven't been too kind to Gonzaga, but maybe their game against Saint Mary's this week could show that they deserve a boost in the Week 16 polls.
