Dick Vitale Releases New College Basketball Top 10

Dick Vitale makes his prediction on the game.

Last week, we told you to expect some changes in Dick Vitale's top 10 when it is updated on Monday. Indeed, there was some shifting of teams.

Every Monday, Vitale unveils a new top 25 ranking. It is an interesting change of pace from the standard Associated Press and Coaches' Poll top 25's that come out earlier in the day.

Tennesee and Duke remain No. 1 and No. 2 in Vitale's top 10, but Virginia dropped from No. 3 to No. 5 after losing to the Blue Devils. As a result, Gonzaga and Kentucky each moved up a spot.

Additionally, Houston and Purdue have replaced Marquette and Michigan State at the bottom of the top 10.

Here is Vitale’s updated top 10:

  1. Tennessee
  2. Duke
  3. Gonzaga
  4. Kentucky
  5. Virginia
  6. Michigan
  7. Nevada
  8. North Carolina
  9. Houston
  10. Purdue

Tonight, we have a showdown between the fifth-ranked Cavaliers and North Carolina, who Vitale slots at No. 8. Kentucky has a tough SEC matchup lined up with LSU tomorrow, while Duke has to travel to Louisville.

Lastly, Michigan has a big test on its hands on Saturday when it hosts the ranked Maryland Terrapins.
