CHN Top 50 2009-10: Week One

    
November 16th, 2009

The Collegehoops.net Top 50 Power Ranking is your weekly window into the national college basketball scene.  Is the Top 50 Better than the AP or the Coaches Polls? At the very least, the Top 50 has no agenda like the coaches and we go deeper into the country than most power-conference biased media members. The CHN Top 50 is brought to you before everybody else late Sunday night! (New: Check out the weekly Non-BCS Top 25 Ranking.)

 

Week One Top 50 Ranking: November 16th

by Shawn Siegel: Collegehoops.net Editor

 

- Only two of the Top 50 teams lost; Mississippi State to Rider (who moves onto the next in line list), and Creighton to Top 20 team Dayton on the road. A few changes here and there based on how well or not well teams looked, but otherwise this is pretty much how the ranking looked in the preseason. 08-09 final Top 50 ranking is included for reference. "Pre." = preseason ranking.
