As conference play heats up, we should expect to see the middle and bottom of the rankings sort themselves out, while the top may struggle to hold their positions.
This week's edition of the Commonwealth Power Rankings shows little movement at the top of the standings, while the second half is like the wild west, where anything goes. Things are perhaps starting to settle, as Virginia Tech found its first conference win and VCU gets ranked in both polls. Virginia is a young team still trying to figure out its identity, though its bout of injuries is not helping the cause. Richmond has a chance this week to prove that it belongs with the Commonwealth's elite, if there is such a category.
Without further ado, here are this week's rankings. The number of first place votes are in parenthesis.
|1||VCU Rams (4)||14-3||1|
|4||Virginia Tech Hokies||10-6||5|
|5||George Mason Patriots||8-6||4|
|8||Norfolk St. Spartans||8-10||8|
|9||William & Mary Tribe||7-8||6|
|14||Old Dominion Monarchs||2-14||10|
