15. VCU Rams (4-0)
Previous ranking:
Unranked
This week: vs. Florida Gulf Coast (Saturday)
The Rams defense was never going to be an issue this season, but their ability -- or lack thereof -- to score consistently was the only thing keeping them out of our preseason top 25. But after putting up 83 points against LSU last week, Mike Rhoades' team has the makings of a legitimate second-weekend threat in the NCAA tournament. VCU ranked in the top 10 nationally in defensive efficiency last season and won 12 straight games to end the regular season, but their offensive output against good opponents left something to be desired. Having five guys in double figures against a good LSU team brings some optimism at that end moving forward.

Wow, didn't think we would jump that high (realizing this is just a couple of voters). How does Washington stay in the top 25 and Tennessee doesn't get in?

That's a huge jump in the rankings. Not complaining, But scratching my head over how you jump that much when you've only played one other ranked team.

On a side note, seeing VCU basketball, and VT football both ranked makes my heart soar like a hawk......
