Feb. 9: VA Top Five
Every Monday during the college basketball regular season, SLANTblog offers 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 (15-7, 5-3 in ACC, No. 40 RPI) 2. VCU (17-7, 10-3 in CAA, No. 73 RPI) 3. Mason (16-7, 9-4 in CAA, No. 57 RPI) 4. VMI (19-4, 10-2 in Big South, No. 129 RPI) 5. JMU (16-9, 8-5 in CAA, No. 127 RPI)
Although Virginia is at No. 99 in the RPI, I just can't put the Cavaliers in the Top Five this week.
