The following is Lawrence Journal-World sports editor Tom Keegan's ballot for the Associated Press men's basketball poll on Feb. 12, 2013.

What does any of this have to do with Elijah Johnson having the biggest meltdown of any KU basketball player in Kansas history?? 1-6 shooting... Again under 20%. Sucks...
Tkeegan has it right again!
It's been a wild year to vote. I do think Miami crushing Duke by 27 points and leading the same conference by two games makes it tough for all those who put the Blue Devils ahead of the 'Canes to explain that one. Same for Pitt beating Georgetown by 28, but at least Georgetown is one game ahead of the Panthers in Big East standings.
Hot damn Keegan! I like it! So...you were one of the 17 AP voters that gave Miami a #1 ranking. I would give you a great big bear hug if I could. Well done, sir.
PSM-we've actually lost to 3 teams ranked behind us.
Agree with mouseclicker ... about where I thought (hoped?) KU would be in this poll. It's just funny that there are these polls that take you through this emotional roller coaster just to prove the ups-and-downs of the majority of teams on any given night. While there are teams that can stay at the top (middle or bottom) all year, it seems more likely to see a team fluctuate a half-dozen spots throughout the year.
I can't say specifically why, I just cringe at the fact that Miami (FLA) and Florida are both in the top 10.
What's funny is we beat two teams ranked ahead of us and lost to a team ranked behind us
Honestly, I agree with your KU placement, Keegan, more than the actual AP poll. I still thought 14th was a little too high, but in the right area.
