Dom's CBB Top 25 (2/9/21)

Greg Domsic

I'm over the Super Bowl hangover and ready to release my weekly rankings, a day late but even more accurate after watching Monday's games. Gonzaga took care of business rather easily aginst WCC rival BYU, though they made bettors sweat the spread at the very end of the game. I had Ohio State slated to fill that revolving door of the #3 spot, and they reinforced that decision with a solid road win against a hungry Maryland team. Kyle Young and EJ Liddell while a bit undersized are still one of the best front courts in the country. The emergence of Justin Ahrens as a knock-down sharpshooter from the perimeter really makes the Buckeyes such a tough team to beat. USC is the only Pac 12 team represented, though Colorado continues to be a team barely outside my rankings. Kansas got their first respectable win in a month. It wasn't enough for me to include Kansas in the Top 25, but it did prevent Oklahoma State from pushing into the teens. Although I would take Gonzaga's Jalen Suggs with the first pick of the NBA Draft, most mock drafts continue to have Oklahoma State's Cade Cunningham at the top spot. It would be a major disappointment if the NCAA didn't allow Oklahoma State to play in this year's tournament. Anthony Edwards, Markelle Fultz and Ben Simmons were all #1 picks that didn't play in the NCAA Tournament but the difference is their teams weren't good. Cade Cunningham's Oklahoma State team actually has Elite Eight type upside, and I'd love to see Cade showcase his elite talent in March.
