NCAA Men's Basketball Weekly Power Rankings-Week 11NCAAM Basketball Power Rankings - Tennessee Volunteers
Last week the AP Poll top ten didn't move by any means. Indeed, that is going to change as currently this week we have seen a few great groups lose. Duke lost as gigantic top choices to Syracuse, and Virginia 피나클 Tech got smothered by their in-state rival Virginia. Those two groups feature our development in week eleven, yet there ought to be loads of development this week in the main ten. How about we begin!

#1. Tennessee VolunteersLast Week's Rank:
#2 (15-1)The Tennessee Volunteers slide into the best position this week interestingly the entire season. The Vols did nothing charming this week, however they did what needed to be done against three strong SEC groups. Getting prevails upon Missouri, Florida, and Arkansas. The SEC is solid through and through, so any successes in association play will areas of strength for be. Particularly when you can win out and about like this Tennessee group did for this present week.However long Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams are solid, the Vols include the best one-two punch in the SEC and are my pick to bring home the ordinary season championship. Then, up for the Vols, they have the Alabama Crimson Tide and afterward travel to Vanderbilt to play the Commodores. Nothing is ever simple in meeting play, so these games won't be gimmies, yet the Vols ought to be weighty top choices in the two games. Tennessee plays generally center of the get groups the following a little while prior to wrapping together association play against four straight groups that are presently positioned in the main 25.
Michigan Wolverines Logo
#2. Michigan WolverinesLast Week's Rank:
#3 (17-0)The Michigan Wolverines are one of just two undefeated groups left in division one school circles. Their undefeated record was never truly in danger this week as they beat an obviously overmatched Illinois group out and about by twofold digits and afterward followed that success up by beating Northwestern twice this year. The initial occasion when Big Blue played the Wildcats it was a nail-biter that went down to the last belonging. This time, Michigan had no issues by any stretch of the imagination with Northwestern as they blew them out by twenty.The Wolverines have a deadly blend of a first class safeguard and an awesome offense. Per kenpom, Michigan has the number three appraised protective proficiency of any group in America. Their offense comes in at number twenty. These folks can do it on the two sides of the ball. The Wolverines have what may be their hardest trial of the year coming up as they play at Wisconsin, a spot that is never simple to win. Then from that point onward, they play Minnesota at home and afterward Indiana out and about. Assuming Big Blue figures out how to endure this intense week, don't be stunned in the event that they end up in the main spot in my power rankings.
Virginia Cavaliers Logo
#3. Virginia CavaliersLast Week's Ranking:
#4 (16-0)I can positively pay attention to a case for the Virginia Cavaliers as the main group. They are undefeated and just fell off a gigantic win over a best ten positioned Virginia Tech group. Also, I'll be the first to concede, I figured they would be on disturbed alert against the Hokies. Be that as it may, they overwhelmed them, ultimately winning by 22 focuses. I had similar inclination when they played Florida State last week, and they dominated that match by thirteen. Perhaps it is their guard first attitude the frightens me away positioning them higher? Perhaps it is waiting anxiety toward seeing them lose last year in the first round of the NCAA competition with that exact same guard first mindset?Regardless, the Cavaliers will get an opportunity to play themselves into that best position not long from now as they travel to Durham to play Duke. Indeed, Duke lost for the current week and dropped out of the best position, however the Blue Devils are still obviously the most gifted group in the country. In the event that the Cavs can go into Cameron Indoor and knock the Blue Devils off, I will have no real option except to put them at number one. Assuming that they lose, similar to I doubt they will, this number four positioning will have an only outlook on right.
Gonzaga Bulldogs Logo
#4. Gonzaga BulldogsLast Week's Rank:
#5 (16-2)Assuming the Gonzaga Bulldogs planned to lose a meeting game this year, it would have been for this present week at San Francisco. I know some of you all out there that don't follow the more modest gatherings may be chuckling right now that beating the Dons is a major achievement, however don't allow your obliviousness to discolor what was a decent success for the Zags. San Francisco has areas of strength for an and gave Gonzaga everything they could deal with, as they were driving 81-79, with under four minutes to play in the game.The Bulldogs had the option to complete on a major run, that saw them win, 맥스벳 however cover the spread against the Dons, yet they are cheerful they will not need to make a beeline for the sound again this season. I'm not saying the remainder of the WCC play will be a breeze for the Zags, the association is superior to it has been in years, yet they are probably going to be twofold digit top picks in each game the remainder of the exit plan. Running the table in association play is rarely simple, yet this is obviously the Zags meeting to lose now.
Duke Blue Devils Logo
#5. Duke Blue DevilsLast Week's Rank:
#1 (14-2)I can see a considerable lot of you may be stunned by seeing that I have dropped Duke the entire way to number five. Be that as it may, listen to me here. I needed to bounce Michigan and Virginia over them as they are both undefeated with significant successes this week. Also, when I went to space the Blue Devils in at number four in front of Gonzaga, that didn't feel right either as the Blue Devils have a straight on misfortune to the Zags. In this way, here the Blue Devils are at number five. As I referenced over, the Blue Devils will have an extraordinary chance to bounce back from the resentful misfortune to Syracuse when they have Virginia in the not so distant future.If it's not too much trouble, NOTE:
Assuming Duke figures out how to knock off Virginia, and that is a strong enormous in the event that, you can put forth the defense they ought to bounce right once more into the best position. We as a whole realize this group is the most skilled group in the nation, and frankly, not even all nearby. However, we saw what happened when they sat perhaps their best player, Cam Reddish, against Syracuse this week. Ruddy has been a smidgen all over this season however not having him on the floor truly hurt them against the Orange. In the wake of playing Florida State in a spine chiller, and afterward losing to Syracuse in extra time, the Blue Devils play Virginia and afterward things quiet down a smidgen for Coach K's group. Whether the Blue Devils have that main positioning by their name, they obviously have a gigantic objective on their back and will have everybody's most obvious opportunity.
Texas Tech Red Raiders Logo
#6. Texas Tech Red RaidersLast Week's Ranking:
#8 (15-1)All in all, exactly who is the best group in the Big 12 this year? I think it is, in all honesty, the Texas Tech Red Raiders. This week the Red Raiders took in two of the best groups the Big 12 brings to the table and figured out how to beat both Texas and Oklahoma. Jarrett Culver keeps on creating as a player and is my surprisingly strong contender possibility for Big 12 player of the year. It is difficult to limit what Dedric Lawson is doing in Lawrence, however when Culver dropped 23 and thirteen against a positioned Sooners group before tis week, he set the remainder of the association straight. Tech plays against a tricky decent Iowa State group next prior to going out and about against Baylor and K-State. The date to circle on your schedule currently is February second, when the Red Raiders head to Lawrence to play the Jayhawks, probable with the Big 12 title on the line.
Kansas Jayhawks Logo
#7. Kansas JayhawksLast Week's Rank:
#6 (14-2)What's more, opened simply behind the Red Raiders are those Kansas Jayhawks. These groups are one and one-A now, and you could without much of a stretch trade them in the rankings. I give the slight gesture to the Red Raiders at this moment, yet I could be persuaded in any case. The Jayhawks have had a harsh ride as of late and to that end I have them behind Texas Tech. They dominated a tight match against Oklahoma, then lost at Iowa State, and have followed up that misfortune with three straight wins against TCU, Baylor, and Texas. In any case, every one of the three of those wins were by single-digits in close games.Are the Jayhawks the best group in the Big 12? Perhaps they are, yet all the same just barely. This group is acquiring each success at the present time. Next up for Kansas is an outing to Morgantown to play the West Virginia Mountaineers. And keeping in mind that Bob Huggins crew is as the year progressed, Morgantown is never a simple spot to win. From that point onward, they get an opportunity for retribution at home against Iowa State and afterward travel to Lexington for a non-gathering matchup with the Kentucky Wildcats. On the off chance that the Jayhawks haven't lost one more game around this time one week from now, you can anticipate that they should bounce once again into the main five. However, you could put forth the defense they could lose at least one games in this impending stretch, so what's to come is truly hanging out there right now for Bill Self's group.
Michigan State Spartans Logo
#8. Michigan StateLast Week's Ranking:
#9 (15-2)Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans have discreetly dominated ten straight matches. This week the Spartans beat Purdue and Penn State, and neither one of the games was excessively aggressive as the Spartans rolled. Things are going to get much harder for Michigan State one week from now however as they play at Nebraska, then home against Maryland prior to going out and about against Iowa. The Wolverines are grabbing up all of the publicity in the state and the association, however don't be stunned assuming the Big 10 title goes through the Breslin Center again this year.
Virginia Tech Hokies Logo
#9 Virginia Tech HokiesLast Week's Ranking: #7 (14-2)
There is unquestionably no disgrace in losing at Virginia. The Cavaliers could possibly be the best group in the country. Yet, the way that the Cavs destroyed Virginia Tech was very astounding. They didn't simply lose to Virginia, they got beat down.
