Top-25: February 18

So, college basketball. Yeah, that’s the point that we’re at with this season. It is an absolute crapshoot. Filling out a bracket is going to be more difficult this year than ever before. The field is still WIDE open, and teams will continue to jockey for position over these last two and a half weeks of the regular season. Then we’ll transition to the conference tournaments, where all hell could break loose. It’s going to be a fun ride, so strap in! Here’s my Top-25 for this week.
