Mention the Big 12 and the conversation usually starts with Kansas. Sometimes, it stops with Kansas. Not this year, because the league is loaded. Just take a look at all the teams that made the list this week.

Spoke with ESPN 100 PG Courtney Ramey. Will take an official visit to Texas Dec 27-30, as well as Villanova and UCLA in February. Already visited Oklahoma State. He is still looking at Ohio State, Louisville and Missouri. Ramey is out with a broken wrist but his team Webster Groves plays Memphis East tonight 7pm est ESPN2
Jalen Brunson had 22 of his career-high 31 points in No. 1 Villanova's dominating first half and Omari Spellman scored 27 to help lead the Wildcats to an 87-67 rout of Temple on Wednesday night.
The argument about the best player in college basketball will go on all season. But it's already clear which players are the most exciting. We go through the list, starting, of course, with Deandre Ayton and Collin Sexton.
Villanova is the new No. 1 in the AP Top 25, hopping over Michigan State, while Arizona State made a big leap after a tumultuous week in which half of the top 10 lost.
Wait, hear us out. The easy move, after Duke's loss, was to jump Villanova or Michigan State to the top spot. But if you look at the entire body of work, raising Arizona State all the way to No. 1 isn't so crazy.
There are seven unbeaten teams left in college basketball. Some are unblemished because they are playing well, others because they haven't played anybody. So when will each lose? Some could be 24 hours from now. For others, it could be awhile.

Watched Villanova up close win 3 games in 3 days at the Battle 4 Atlantis. What stood-out most is their balanced scoring and togetherness. Their team approach is business like. Climbing to no.1.
Phil Booth and Donte DiVincenzo each scored 18 points to help No. 4 Villanova avoid an upset and remain undefeated in a 77-68 win over La Salle on Sunday.

Duke haters beware. Almost no way the Blue Devils fall off the top line even with loss at B.C. Villanova likely No. 1 overall in next bracket if it finishes off Philly sweep of La Salle and Temple.

Villanova Coach Jay Wright catches up with former Wildcat Josh Hart as the Lakers visit Philadelphia Thursday.
