Top 12 College Basketball Teams: December 14

Shockingly, the undefeated Michigan State Spartans takes the top spot this week.

Who would get a top-3 seed if the NCAA Tournament started today? If we had our picks, the top 12 teams in college basketball would look something like this:

1. Michigan State (11-0) 7. Kentucky (9-1)
2. Kansas (8-1) 8. Purdue (11-0)
3. Oklahoma (7-0) 9. Iowa State (9-0)
4. Maryland (9-1) 10. North Carolina (7-2) 
5. Duke (8-1) 11. Butler (8-1) 
6. Xavier (10-0) 12. Arizona (9-1)

There's no surprise that Sparty's No. 1, or that this list is loaded with teams from the Big Ten and Big 12, but questions still abound. Could Oklahoma's place at No. 3 and Iowa State's place at No. 9 mean trouble for Kansas and their dynasty? Is Xavier a true title contender? And where is Skal Labissiere?
