Basketball Power Rankings 1-27


Now that conference play is in full swing, I think that we should start to have some power rankings. This season has been full of surprises and upsets  -- as you may know if you follow www.bwin.com.


1. Florida- Florida is my number one team in this week’s power rankings. They are 6-0 in conference play and have looked really good. This past week Florida have beat Georgia and Mississippi State by a combined total of 52 points. Florida has shot 49% from the field and they average 73 points. The Gators’ leading scorer is Kenny Boynton. Boynton averages 13 points per a game and shoots 41%.

2. Ole Miss- Ole Miss takes my number two spot in this week’s power rankings. The Rebels are also 6-0 in the conference and they are on a nine game winning streak. This past week they have struggled a little but they beat both Tennessee and Auburn. Ole Miss averages 81 points and 40 rebounds per game. Their leading scorer is Marshall Henderson who averages 19 points per a game.

3. Missouri-Missouri is 4-2 in conference play but both of their losses were by 15 or more. This past week Mizzou struggled with South Carolina but looked really impressive against Vanderbilt. Mizzou averages 75 points and 42 rebounds per a game. The Tigers’ leading scorer is Laurence Bowers who averages 17 points per game while shooting 58%. Bowers has been out with a knee injury since Mizzou’s SEC opener against Alabama. Bowers should make his return next game which will really help Mizzou.

4. Alabama-Alabama is 4-2 in conference play and have been up and down all season. This past week Alabama beat Kentucky but they lost to Tennessee by one. Alabama averages only 65 points per a game but they shoot 45%. Alabama’s leading scorer is Trevor Releford. Releford averages 16 points per a game and he shoots 49% from the field.  

5. Kentucky- Kentucky has really struggled by their standards but they are still 4-2 in conference play. This past week Kentucky lost to Alabama and just squeaked by LSU. Kentucky averages 76 points per a game on 48% shooting. They also get 39 rebounds and 15 assist. The Wildcats’ leading scorer is Archie Goodwin. Goodwin averages 15 points each game.

6. Tennessee-Tennessee is 2-4 in conference play. This past week Tennessee lost at Ole Miss but they upset Alabama. Tennessee averages 37 rebounds and only 65 points per a game. Tennessee’s leading scorer is Jordan McRae who averages 15 points per game.

7. South Carolina- South Carolina is 2-4 in conference play. They have had a pretty good past week. The Gamecocks beat Arkansas by 21 and gave Mizzou all they could handle in a close loss. They average 71 points and 38 rebounds per game. Their leading scorer is Brenton Williams who averages 12 points per game.

8. Arkansas-Arkansas is 3-3 in conference play. This past week they beat Mississippi State by 26 but they lost to South Carolina by 21. Arkansas looked really bad in their loss. The Razorbacks average 80 points and 16 assist per game. Their leading scorer is BJ Young who averages 17 points per game.

9. Georgia-Georgia is 2-4 in conference play. This past week they lost to Florida but won on the road at Texas A&M. They average only 59 points per game but they have all you can eat seats. Their leading scorer is Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who averages 17 points per game.

10. Vanderbilt- Vanderbilt is 2-4 in conference play. This past week they beat Auburn by 12 but lost to Mizzou by 22. They average only 60 points and 33 rebounds per game. Their leading scorer is Kedren Johnson who averages 15 points per game.

11. LSU- LSU is 1-5 in conference play. This past week they beat Texas A&M and almost upset Kentucky on the road. LSU averages 72 points and 15 assist per game. Their leading scorer is Shavon Coleman who averages 12 points per game.

12.  Texas A&M-Texas A&M is 2-4 in conference play but they have dropped their past four games. This past week they lost by 4 to LSU and lost by 7 to Georgia. The Aggies average 64 points on 45% shooting. Their leading scorer is Elston Turner who averages 16 points per game.

13. Auburn-Auburn is 2-4 in conference play and have lost their last 4 games. This past week they have lost to Vanderbilt and Ole Miss. They gave Ole Miss a really good game and they only lost by 2 points. They average 68 points and 14 assist per game. Their leading scorer is Frankie Sullivan who averages 17 points per game.

Despite losing to Bama I still have Kentucky over Bama as far as power rankings, I could easily put OM past Mizzou in the rankings, but I'm going to hold out and see how they do in their next 4-5 games, which is arguably the roughest part of their schedule.

I would also reorder the bottom based off SOS and who they have beaten.
Great list, although I think I'd have TAMU above LSU. But other than that I wouldn't make any changes, good rankings..

The reason I put A&M above LSU is because A&M has lost their past 4 games. Plus LSU beat them and they almost upset Kentucky.
@Hothotz did you notice what I said about Georgia?

C'mon man, you know that isn't right
It is right....until tourney time.  We will win the SEC tourney and go farther than any other SEC team in the Big Dance.  Cause that's how we roll.

No....I'm acknowledging UF is the better team right now.

Y'all almost lost both of your games this week, no way should you be number 2 in a power rankings.
The next UK game will be interesting

Florida looks pretty good, still have not won the big games.

Missouri has not impressed me at all.

Ole Miss is improved, but is still Ole Miss.

Alabama was rewarded by Kentucky's inexperience.

Kentucky is the most talented team in the country and gaining experience.
Watching the Gamecocks this year has been like seeing a kid grow up right before your eyes. It's amazing compared to what we looked like last year. If Frank Martin sticks around I don't see any reason we can't stay in the top 1/3 of the SEC as long as he's here.
Kentucky could lose every game here on out and SECats wouldn't move them out of the top 3 folks, there is no point in arguing.
There is no way that Kentucky is the most talented team in the Country. I understand being a fan of your team, but I would never say that Florida is the best team in the country. I might make an argument for the best defensive team but I wouldn't make such a bold statement when I know it isn't true.

Florida Hasn't won any big games? They destroyed Marquette and Wisconsin, were beating Arizona until a late game collapse (In Arizona I might add), and it's not like Arizona is a pushover team, and Kansas state isnt either. Every single game they have won have all been absolute beat downs on the other teams. And Florida did shut down the guy who hung 40 on the wildcats, do you remember that? And they shut down arguably the best point guard in the NCAA.

Ole miss...is ole miss I'll give you that.

Like I said before, Mizzou has probably the best pure point guards in the nation and when Bowers gets back they will probably be a better team come tourney time.

Face it, this isn't last year. The Kentuck One-and-Doners got lucky last year because of Anthony Davis, and he isn't walking into Rupp any time soon. No one stands out on that team like Davis and Kidd-Gilchrest did last season. Maybe next years starting 5 will be the "Most talented team in the nation."

Yes because Kentucky has the best team in the country and the only way y'all could beat them is with some home cookin.
Where is 15-27?  I could careless about basketball but clicked to find out who the new 13 teams in the SEC were.

We will have the most talented team in the nation next year by a mile. Our recruiting class is ridiculus and Cal is still in the running with both Wiggins and Randle. We have five 5* and one 4 star coming in. Seeing how dreadful this year has gone you gotta expect a couple guys to stay around to add some experience for us. Another perfect storm is brewing.

Come SEC tourney time this team will be at its peak and will be playing just as good as Florida is.

I've always tended to agree, but I'm starting to doubt.
I thought the Auburn game was the turning point for sure, but they looked like garbage against LSU.
I don't get it.
I think that this set of freshman just isn't going to gell and become a good team.
