'Nova remains in top 20

There was a lot of speculation yesterday and this morning as to where Villanova would be ranked in the two major college basketball polls.

Last week, Villanova went 1-1, with a bad loss at DePaul, a team with a losing record, and a solid home win over a top-15 team in Pittsburgh.

The Wildcats have basically treaded water in both polls. In the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll, Villanova checks in at #17, down one spot from #16 last week.

Villanova has secured the #19 spot in the AP media poll, down from #17 last week.

Without the win against Pitt, Villanova would likely have fallen out of the top 25 entirely.

Only Georgetown and Marquette rank ahead of the Wildcats in the polls. Pitt is one spot behind Villanova in each poll. No other Big East team is represented in either top 25.

What a terrible performance against DePaul. Just embarrassing. The coaching left a lot to be desired, too. Not sure I'm fully confident in Jay Wright when it comes to X's and O's.

I hate ND, but in all fairness, they deserve to be in the top 25. They had two convincing wins over WVU and UCONN. WVU should also remain in the top 25 because of that Marquette win.
