ESPN.com Power Rankings: March 11
This is what college basketball's hierarchy looks like after 19 weeks of regular-season play as conference tournaments have begun.
Villanova's two-loss run through the Big East vaulted the Wildcats into our top five for just the second time this season, while Louisville's rout of UConn on Saturday moved the Cards up five spots.
The Jabari Parker-Rodney Hood show was impressive in Duke's win over North Carolina, but the loss to Wake Forest cost the Blue Devils dearly. Kansas, likewise, dropped a few spots because of its loss to West Virginia.
We'll have another poll after a champion is crowned in Arlington, Texas, but for now, it's tournament time.
