Conference tournament week saw a total of 17 changes in the top 25. Duke and Villanova both slide back into the top 5 after some weeks out. Michigan State and Wisconsin both jumped up the top 25 while Seton Hall fell 8 spots. 

Old Dominion and Bowling Green also join the top 25 for the first time this season. Perfect timing. 

Tomorrow, we give our NCAA tournament prediction as we did last year. Stay tuned.
