This week's AP Top 25 poll (11/16)
The 2009-10 college basketball season finally began last week, though it was difficult to notice with all the mismatches.
The action intensifies this week as No. 1 Kansas and Memphis play Tuesday night at the Basketball Hall of Fame Showcase in St. Louis in a rematch of the 2008 national championship game. In the opening game at Scottrade Center, Louisville opens its season against Arkansas. Razorbacks sophomore guard and former Vertigris standout Rotnei Clarke had 51 points last Friday against Alcorn State, converting an SEC-record 13 3-pointers in just 17 attempts and finishing 15 of 21 from the field.
Also on Tuesday night, Michigan State hosts Gonzaga, which lost four starters. On Thursday, North Carolina is at Ohio State and Syracuse is at California.
Top upset last week: Rider 88, (No. 18) Mississippi State 74
This week’s showcase: North Carolina at Ohio State (Thursday)
The first Associated Press regular-season poll comes out later this afternoon. Here is how I voted:
3. Michigan State
6. North Carolina
8. West Virginia
12. Georgia Tech
14. Ohio State
