Top-25: February 11

It has been a difficult week for a couple teams. Providence, which has been considered as one of the powers in the Big East, is currently on a three game losing streak after falling in double overtime last night to Marquette. That came after losses at DePaul and at home against Villanova. The Friars are struggling, and every night in the Big East is a difficult test. It will be interesting to see how they respond. Another team that was riding high recently was Texas A&M. They were at the top of the SEC, and were nearing the Top-5. Then they got blown out by Vanderbilt, lost a tough one at home against South Carolina, and last night, they were upset by Avery Johnson’s Alabama Crimson Tide. Both Providence and Texas A&M have plummeted in my rankings, and some other teams have moved up as a result. Here’s this week’s Top-25!
