My AP ballot

Colorado was in the “also receiving votes” portion of this week’s Associated Press top-25 poll that has just been released. The Buffs were 30th with 78 votes.

CU was No. 23 on my ballot after starting Big 12 play 3-0 for the first time since the glory days of Chauncey Billups, including back-to-back wins over ranked opponents (a program first) and an impressive comeback win over Oklahoma State on Saturday (CU trailed by 12 points in the second half and won 75-71).

1. Ohio State
