Movers And Shakers

Zags Prove Themselves:
After a successful trip to Fort Meyers that saw runaway wins over #5 Kansas and Auburn, Gonzaga moves up from #3 in the preseason, jumping Baylor to be our first ever unanimous #1 ranked team

Taking A Tumble:
After two shocking upsets, Villanova and Virginia both fall from the top five (previously #1 and #4) to the middle of the pack as Nova takes #11 and Virginia falls to #19

Upset In Lexington:
After a Sunday afternoon matchup at Rupp Arena that saw Richmond topple a young Kentucky team, the Spiders debut in the poll at #21, while the Wildcats slip to #14

New In Town:
After taking down Villanova in Bubbleville, Virginia Tech leads the way for newcomers, appearing at #16, Louisville and Richmond also join them as the newest members of the Top 25

Catch Ya On The Flip Side:
If three teams are new to the poll, that means three teams have to leave. UCLA (#19), UConn (#21), and Ohio State (#25) all lose the number next to their name after some struggles starting off the season.
