We have a new college basketball top 25 poll. It's the second-to-last top 25 poll of the regular season.

The regular season is wrapping up. This is the final week of the regular season for all of the power conferences, with the Big Ten actually already being done.

The Big Ten's conference tournament will take place this week. It's been moved up a week early so it can be played in New York City.

The new poll features some changes, but not a ton of movement. The top five teams remain the same, though there is some shuffling within those spots.

Virginia, which has likely wrapped up a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, is the No. 1 team again. The Cavaliers are followed by Michigan State, which won the Big Ten's regular season title on Sunday.

Selection Sunday is less than two weeks away. It's set for Sunday, March 11.

There are probably six or seven teams in contention for No. 1 seeds. Along with UVA, Michigan State, Duke, Xavier, Kansas, Villanova and North Carolina could be in line for top seeds.

We can't wait.
