Kentucky moved up one spot in the latest CBS college basketball poll, moving up to No. 20 in the rankings.

It seems fine without any context, but when you look at the rest of the poll, you’re not gonna like it.

Despite losing five of their last six games, including one at home against the Wildcats, the West Virginia Mountaineers are ranked ahead of Kentucky in the latest CBS college basketball poll.

North Carolina, a team that has lost three consecutive games, was also listed above the Wildcats.

Better record, worse ranking. Makes sense.

Kansas (18-4) comes in at No. 4, Texas Tech (18-4) comes in at No. 9, and Oklahoma (16-5) comes in at No. 11.

Kentucky hasn’t played the “prettiest” of basketball as of late, but come on now…

    I like how they say kenpom with every team except unc. With them they say top 25 wins lol. But yet rankings don’t matter when talking about any of our wins/losses ?

    It’ll all work out in March, rankings can’t save you from playing head to head

    It’s silly to get caught up in rankings fairness at this point, Jack – particularly when a good case can be made that Ky is actually over-ranked…

      Lol, UK is 13th in the RPI and doesn’t have any bad losses like Duke. Duke just lost to the worst team in the Big East. UNC lost to Wofford. SEC is underrated and is 11-7 vs the overrated big 12. UK is also an easy 2-0 vs the ACC.

    Which team has the greatest opportunity for improvement based upon future play? I like the Cats upside.

    UNC and WVU should be unranked. However we are where we should be. WVU has lost 5 of last 6, and got waxed by Iowa state
