SLANTblog's VA Top Five: Jan 25

Each Monday morning during the rest of the men's college basketball regular season, SLANTblog will publish its new Virginia Top Five. For the third consecutive season it will attempt to rank what seems at the moment to be the best five teams from among the 14 Division I programs in the Commonwealth. Only games against Division I opponents are counted in won/loss records.

SLANTblog's VA Top Five

1. ODU (16-5, 8-1 in CAA, No. 36 RPI)
2. Richmond (15-6, 4-2 in A-10, No. 41 RPI)
3. VCU (13-5, 5-4 in CAA, No. 49 RPI)
4. Va. Tech (15-3, 2-2 in ACC, No. 69 RPI)
5. Wm. & Mary (13-5, 6-3 in CAA, No. 44 RPI)

Note: Since the last Top Five (Jan. 18): ODU went 2-0; Richmond went 1-1; VCU went 1-1; Va. Tech went 2-0 to rejoin the group; W&M went 0-2; UVa. went 1-1 to drop off the list.
