A surprising Thursday worth of college hoops results means some shakeups in Gary Parrish’s Top 25 and 1 for Friday. The CBS Sports analyst had to replace Michigan and Texas A&M after a pair of bad losses by the two teams last night, which meant a team like Iowa finally got to make their debut in the rankings following an impressive win over Seton Hall.

Without further ado, check out Friday’s edition of the Top 25 and 1:

CBS Sports Top 25 and 1

  1. Texas
  2. North Carolina
  3. Houston
  4. Kansas
  5. Gonzaga
  6. Michigan State
  7. Kentucky
  8. Arkansas
  9. Baylor
  10. UCLA
  11. Duke
  12. Creighton
  13. Indiana
  14. Auburn
  15. Virginia
  16. Arizona
  17. Tennessee
  18. San Diego State
  19. Alabama
  20. Purdue
  21. Ohio State
  22. Saint Louis
  23. Illinois
  24. UCONN
  25. Iowa
  26. Texas Tech


Texas maintains atop the poll, and the state as a whole is very well represented on these rankings. Texas and Houston are two of the top three with Baylor coming in the top 10 as well at ninth. Then, the very last team in there is Texas Tech. The Lone Star State has some crazy college basketball talent this season. Wonder what odds you could get for the national title winner to come from Texas. Seems like a very real possibility this year.

Frankly, not a lot of movement happened outside of the four squads who went in and out of the rankings. But that’ll change tomorrow, as a slew of ranked teams face off tonight and a few of them are bound to lose, right?

Well, there’s definitely going to be a few teams that move around after tonight, since No. 10 UCLA faces No. 23 Illinois late Friday night in Las Vegas. But that’s not the only ranked matchup. No. 9 Baylor and No. 15 Virginia precede that UCLA-Illinois matchup in a clash between two defensive-minded programs. Except the Bears are also a very progressive offense and shoot the ball as well as anyone in the country.

Incredible night of hoops out in the desert. Plus, plenty of other holiday tournaments that have gotten underway. Feast Week is just gettin’ started, folks. Strap in for a week and a half’s worth of excellent college basketball.
