Conference USA Basketball Power 5

CUSA-fans.com presents the Conference USA Basketball Power 5, a weekly-updated ranking of the top 5 basketball teams in Conference USA as voted on by the CUSA-fans.com staff. Like the Top 25 polls, 5 points are awarded for a 1st place vote and 1 for a 5th place vote.

A special thanks goes to our weekly "Fan of the Week Guest Voter," blah. "blah" is a frequent poster on the Conference USA bbs message board and was chosen by qualifying according to our weeekly contest rules. If you want to be a guest voter in the CUSA-fans.com Power 5 rankings check the CUSA Conference Talk board for the thread about our Power 5 rankings & contest and maybe you will be next week's winner!

All comments, records and RPI rankings are through 02/04 games.

Rank Team Points Record RPI Comments

1 Memphis (5) 25 21-2
(7-0)
4 The Rice Owls made a few Tiger fans nervous, but good teams find a way to get the win. Memphis is more than just a good team.

2 UAB 20 16-4
(6-1)
45 The loss at Memphis didn't seem to slow the Blazers down any as they have won two straight since then. This Wednesday they face a nice test @ UTEP.

3 Houston 14 14-6
(5-3)
72 Why can't they play quality teams every game? Motivation has to be a factor for the Cougars. In fact, the Cougars are 5-4 against RPI Top 150 teams this year.

4 UTEP 11 13-6
(6-1)
111 The Miners record against the RPI Top 150? 1 win, 5 losses. Hosting UAB on Wednesday will be huge for the Miners if they want to establish themselves as a legitimate contender in C-USA this season.

5t Rice 2 9-11
(3-4)
205 How can anyone not include Rice after the showing against Memphis? A tough week for the Owls with two road games this week @ Marshall and @ Tulsa.

5t Tulane 2 8-12
(4-4)
254 No disrespect to Rice, but Tulane has 3 straight wins - including a victory over the Owls. But the Green Wave has a tough road ahead with UCF, UAB and Memphis next on their C-USA schedule.

Also receiving votes: SMU 1

Added this week: Tulane

Dropped out: UCF, Marshall
