NCAA Basketball Rankings - 23 Jan

The Houston Cougars lost at home to Temple yesterday, meaning that for the third week in a row there is a new team at the top of the rankings, and it's a team we're more used to seeing at the top of the football rankings. Alabama sits on top, followed by conference rival Tennessee, while Saint Mary's and Arizona moved into the top 10. Here are my full current rankings:
