Michigan State, once No. 1, drops to 11th in CBS Sports Top 25 (and one)

Michigan State is trending the wrong way, undeniably. But the Spartans are still a team with a 16-3 record that features four top-50 KenPom wins and just one loss outside of the top 10, and that’s why they only fell to 11th in the updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).

Will Duke avoid a third straight loss?

Simply put, I don’t think anybody below Michigan State has a better body of work. So I see no reason to drop Michigan State lower than 11th. Either way, Oklahoma is still No. 1. You can expect the AP and Coaches polls to follow my lead in that regard.
