We're already two weeks into the 2022-23 college basketball season. Before we know it, it will be March. 

Monday featured another top 25 poll for the best teams in college basketball and the poll still has North Carolina as the best team in the country. 

Houston, Kansas, Texas, and Virginia round out the top five while Gonzaga, Baylor, Duke, Arkansas, and Creighton round out the top 10. 

Virginia makes its debut in the top 10 after it was ranked outside of that in last week's poll. Gonzaga also moves down a few spots after it lost to Texas on Wednesday.

These rankings obviously led to some interesting reactions from the college basketball community.

"UNC stays at 1, Virginia is up to 5, Duke drops to 8. All sounds about right," one tweet read.

"If you’ve watched a Carolina basketball game this year and said “this is the best team in the country” you’re wrong," another tweet read.

We'll have to see how next week's poll is different from this one.
