College Basketball Ranking Week 16: Honorable Mention

UCLA, Tennessee, Providence, Murray State, Wisconsin

Tennessee and Providence were in the Top 10 last week but were relegated after a split. These two teams remain dangerous and build confidence in the short term, making them intriguing teams to check out when the round rolls around in a few weeks.
