CollegeHoops.net Top 50: Week Three

    
November 29th, 2009

The Collegehoops.net Top 50 Power Ranking is your weekly window into the national college basketball scene.  Is the Top 50 Better than the AP or the Coaches Polls? At the very least, the Top 50 has no agenda like the coaches and we go deeper into the country than most power-conference biased media members. The CHN Top 50 is brought to you before everybody else late Sunday night! (New: Check out the weekly Non-BCS Top 25 Ranking.)
