Maryland, Michigan State, and North Carolina finish up the top 5. Maryland needed a last-second three from Melo Trimble to beat Wisconsin at home on Saturday, while Michigan State finally welcomed Denzel Valentine back to the lineup yesterday with a 27 point victory over Penn State. North Carolina got two wins on the road over Florida State and Syracuse.

The remaining members of the top 10 are, in order, Villanova, Xavier, Miami (Florida) Duke, and SMU. Virginia tumbles from #4 all the way to #13 after losses to Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech.

As for other notable members of the Big 12, West Virginia moved from #17 to #11, while aforementioned Baylor moves up to #22 after being unranked last week.
