EJSIC College Basketball Top 25 — Week 5

Pre-Season | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5

After 4 seasons of the SEC/Big East Invitational, the series record now sits at 8-8. The “glass half-full” guy would call that a moral victory for a down SEC, while the “glass half-empty” guy would call that “kissing your sister”. [Insert inbred southerners joke here.] The Dirty Vols continued their climb up the top 25 this week, by pummeling #4 Pitt in Pittsburgh.  Duke played no one and Michigan State lost again. Sounds a lot like every season, doesn’t it?
