College Basketball Rankings 1/6/20

College Basketball Rankings 1/6/20

The top end of the power rankings did not change a whole lot this week. Michigan State remains the number one team in the country after taking down Michigan on Sunday. Only two schools, Utah State and Purdue, dropped out off the Top 25 and were replaced by Dayton and Wisconsin. As you probably have figured out that my power ranking do not reflect the AP top 25. Instead, I design my rankings to be able to predict the Vegas spread. While Michigan State most likely isn’t the number 1 team in most rankings my computer rankings think the stats back it up. While wins will ultimately determine the national champion, they are not the only thing that matters when it comes to ranking teams. Over the weekend KenPom had this to say about ranking teams.

Personally I would add Kentucky to that list of teams, but that is a solid top 3. My main point of writing this is to remind everyone that the AP Top 25 is not a good source for predicting spreads, and has nothing to do with who will win the game. Anyways enough about my thoughts on ranking college basketball teams. Check out the full 353 team power rankings below. Let me know what you think of the rankings on Twitter.
