SB Nation's College Basketball Power 16 - How I Voted

I am honored to be a voting member of the SB Nation College Basketball Power 16 hosted each week by Searching for Billy Edelin. Each Thursday morning college basketball bloggers throughout SB Nation weigh in on their weekly top 16.

What a difficult week! Besides the top three schools, didn't it seem like everyone else lost this past week? Actually it was only half of last week's Power 16, but think about that, HALF OF LAST WEEK'S POWER 16!

And while difficult for voters such as myself in things such as this, it all means that March is going to be one hell of a ride. With no clear cut best team in the nation (KU had some hiccups recently that they overcame, but they're definitely not overpowering folks) one month from now we are all gonna tear up our brackets on the first Thursday of the tourney and shower the bars and sports books with confetti.

Back to the week at hand:

Breakdown by conference:
Big East - 5
Big East - 4
Big 12 - 2
SEC - 2
MWC - 2
ACC - 1

Where do you think I went wrong?
