College basketball Top 25 11/22/09

The EJSIC Top 25: NCAA Basketball
November 23, 2009
Pre-season poll
Week 1
A great week of college basketball. We’re finally getting into some early season tournaments and getting to see some top quality teams playing each other. And we’re learning who was horribly overrated this early. The more we learn about teams, they’ll move up or down.

So, without further ado, here are our rankings (votes – first place votes), with next week’s schedule. Week 3 will be games played between November 22 and November 28. As the season progresses, we’ll keep a log of top wins and bad losses so you can follow the important information to the NCAA tournament.
