November 28 College Basketball Top 25: Wildcats’ Winning Ways

[lead align=”default”]In our first hoops poll of the year, the Kentucky Wildcats are the top team in the November 28 college basketball top 25.[/lead]

It’s highly doubtful that anyone expected differently, and given that the Wildcats are 6-0 and annihilating their competition, there you go. For some context, their narrowest margin of victory was 21 points over a Michigan State team that was ranked. Operative word: WAS. Sure, the non-conference schedule has some potential pitfalls, but Kentucky is more than equipped. This is a team built for a one-seed in March.

Villanova, the defending national champions, picked up where they left off thanks to victories over Purdue and Wake Forest. At 6-0, they face a few more Pennsylvania teams before tougher games against Notre Dame and Temple in mid-December.

One team you won’t see in the below rankings is Michigan State. It’s not often we have bad things to say about Tom Izzo’s Sparty, but here we are. They opened the season with consecutive losses to Arizona and Kentucky, bounced back against Mississippi Valley State, barely beat Florida Gulf Coast, beat St. John’s, and then fell to Baylor before a nice bounce-back against Wichita State. They’ve played a tough schedule, and Izzo apologized for it. Still, not ranking the Spartans just yet with their three losses, even if they were all to ranked teams.

Here’s the very preliminary ranking of the top teams in college hoops this season.
