Jan. 26: SLANTblog's VA Top Five

Each Monday during the remainder of the college basketball regular season, SLANTblog will offer its new Virginia Top Five. This feature ranks what seem at the moment to be the best five teams from among the 14 Division I men's programs in the Commonwealth.

SLANTblog's VA Top Five

1. Va. Tech (14-5, 4-1 in ACC, No. 32 RPI)
2. VCU (15-5, 8-1 in CAA, No. 55 RPI)
3. Mason (14-5, 7-2 in CAA, No. 53 RPI)
4. UVa. (7-9, 1-4 in ACC, No. 102 RPI)
5. VMI (16-3, 8-1 in Big South, No. 119 RPI)

VCU's match-up with Northeastern (8-1 in CAA) on Tuesday at the Siegel Center (9 p.m.) will determine the CAA leader. And, in case you're wondering where Richmond (11-8, 3-1 in A-10) is, RPI-wise, the Spiders are sitting at 128th.

-- RPI numbers from RealTime RPI, as of noon Monday.
