  1. We try to vote on who we think the best teams are each week based on their entire resume rather than a weekly snapshot like the national polls.

    The 3 teams ahead of Nova have looked better all year. Nova is a guard oriented team that’s won a lot of very close games.

    I wouldn’t put money on them over any of our top 3 in a neutral court game.

    That said, it’s not like they should be insulted with #4.
