After starting the season 7-0 and beating USC, Kansas and Iowa on a tropical island this weekend, Villanova went from unranked to number 14 in the latest AP poll.*

They’re number 19 in the ESPN USA Today poll.

I actually thought they’d be somewhere around 18, so I am a bit surprised by the AP poll. But, it’s hard to argue with (thus far) perfection and winning big games on a neutral court. Plus, they’re as high as number five in the RPI rankings.

Carry on. \\//
