Final 2008-09 CollegeHoops.net Top 50 Ranking

    
April 6th, 2009

The Collegehoops.net Top 50 Power Ranking is the web's premier ordering of the national college basketball scene.  Is the Top 50 Better than the AP or the Coaches Polls? Perhaps.. but 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 on Sunday night! (New: Check out the weekly Non-BCS Top 25 Ranking.)

 

This is the final Top 50 of the 2008-09 season. Thanks to everyone who took a look throughout the season and added their comments. See you all next year!
