A pair of schools from the Lone Star State have started to separate themselves in the college basketball power rankings for Week 5.

The only consistent thing in the first month of the college basketball season has been a lack of consistency. North Carolina, which was the preseason No. 1, may fall out of the polls entirely thanks to a four-game losing streak while countless other blue bloods have struggled out of the gate.

The one thing we can count on is that the state of Texas is the capital of the college basketball world right now with three legitimate national championship contenders. Before we take a look at where these school fall in this week’s power rankings, we’ll take a look at the teams that just missed the cut in Week 5’s Honorable Mentions.

Week 5 College Basketball Power Rankings – Honorable Mentions

Note: All rankings referenced in this story are based on the Week 4 AP Top 25 Poll.

Indiana, Duke, Kentucky, Gonzaga, Arizona

It’s blue blood city in the honorable mentions as Indiana was destined for the Top 10 before getting tripped up by Rutgers in East Piscataway. Gonzaga, which was in last week’s Top 10, joins this section for the first time after narrowly losing to Baylor on a neutral floor.

Arizona also tumbled out of the Top 10 after losing to Utah, which was fired up to win on the anniversary of Rick Majerus’ death, but this game is still a bad one for the Wildcats to drop. Duke maintained its position while Kentucky appears to have righted the ship and picked up a nice victory over Michigan in London.
