Top 45 countdown

← return to D1SCOURSE

Connecticut is No. 1.

So, no, I’m not a crazy Memphis voter. Besides, the Tigers are probably worthy of a No. 2 seed regardless of how lousy Conference USA continues to be.

Maryland is about where it was a week ago – just inside the top 40, holding steady while nearly everyone else managed a split last week, too.

So I don’t have the Terps ranked, and neither does anyone else at this point.

Here’s the top 45 (this week’s AP ballot plus 20 more teams):

1. Connecticut (27-2)
2. Pittsburgh (26-3)
3. North Carolina (25-3)
4. Louisville (23-5)
5. Oklahoma (26-3)
6. Memphis (26-3)
