Jan. 7: VA Top Five

For each Monday SLANTblog’s Virginia Top Five for men’s college basketball is published. It attempts to rank what seems on that day to be the best five teams from among the 14 Division I programs in the Commonwealth.

In this Monday's edition there’s one new team, the University of Richmond. The Spiders won their third game in a row by defeating Virginia Tech, which dropped the Hokies from the list. Virginia fell one notch because the ‘Hoos lost at Xavier by 38 points. VCU and JMU both went 1-1 for the week and moved up one position from where they stood last week.
