Xavier didn't get any votes, but some ridiculous teams did.

Samaritan of the week:
This is going to become a feature here on an ongoing basis, generally to highlight the member of the AP who gave his vote to the program that wasn't going to get an help from anywhere else. Today's is John Feinstein. You might remember him as the clown who voted for Valpo last week. This week he's back, having somehow made an even worse pick by voting Army into the top 25. Army is 169th in the KenPom rankings and 144th in the Massey Composite. John Feinstein thinks that there aren't 25 better teams in the entire nation.
