CBS Sports releases updated top 25 and 1 college basketball rankings with big movement

CBS sports has updated its top 25 and 1 college basketball rankings, and there’s plenty of movement to watch.

A few upsets and some big wins turned things around for CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish as he wrote about a few specific rosters ahead of his inclusion in his rankings, including Baylor’s win over Gonzaga on Friday night.

“So now the Bears are ranked 13th in the CBS Sports Top 25 and 1 daily college basketball rankings updated Saturday morning. Gonzaga is at number 14. And because I don’t want Baylor ahead of the Marquette team, which just smoked the Bears, nor Marquette ahead of the Mississippi State team, which is undefeated with a win over the Golden Eagles, I’ve got Mississippi State and Marquette #11 and #12, respectfully, made in the top 25 and 1,” Parrish explained. “All of that movement — combined with Maryland’s jump to No. 10 after Friday night’s 71-66 win over Illinois that put the Terrapins 8-0 with three wins over the top 45 KenPom teams — caused Kentucky, Arizona, Tennessee, Kansas, Duke and the state of Iowa are all being knocked down four spots through no fault of their own.”

Here’s Parrish’s full opinion, released on Saturday afternoon’s CBS Sports Top 25 and 1 rankings.

CBS Sports Updates Top 25 and 1:

1) Texas longhorns
2) Houston Cougars
3) Boilermakers from Purdue
4) Virginia Cavaliers
5) Connecticut huskies
6) Indiana Hoosiers
7) Creighton Blue Jays
8th) Arkansas Razorbacks
9) Alabama Crimson Tide
10) Maryland Turtles
11) Mississippi State Bulldogs
12) Marquette Golden Eagle
13) Baylor Bears
14) Gonzaga Bulldogs
fifteen) Kentucky Wildcats
16) Illinois fights Ilini
17) Arizona wildcats
18) Tennessee volunteers
19) Kansas Jayhawks
20) Duke Blue Devils
21) Hurricanes in the state of Iowa
22) UCLA Bruins
23) Chestnut Tigers
24) Aztecs of the state of San Diego
25) Tar heels from North Carolina
26) Mountaineers from West Virginia

Unfortunately, Baylor was one of the biggest movers, as the Bears, Maryland, Marquette and Mississippi State all climbed eight spots in the rankings. The top eight remained unchanged, but it’s evident that the above teams are making their case.

Meanwhile, several teams fell four spots or more as Gonzaga, Kentucky, Illinois, Arizona, Tennessee, Kansas, Duke and Iowa State all suffered serious slides. Those are some pretty serious contenders hoping to get back on top as they move forward.

Nonetheless, these are Gary Parrish’s rankings for now and it’s difficult to dispute his analysis at the moment.
