Who voted for Temple?

Thirty-five of the AP poll's 65 voters ranked the Owls on their ballots.

As promised, here's a breakdown of the votes Temple received in this week's AP men's basketball Top 25. Thirty-five of the 65 voters ranked the Owls on their ballots.

I've also included where those voters ranked Villanova. The Wildcats are No. 8 in this week's poll and were ranked on every ballot submitted.

The highest Villanova was ranked on any ballot - not just the ones below - was seventh, and the lowest was 11th.

Because so many voters ranked Temple, I think this is the only time I'll do this. But it's still interesting to see the range of locations on the list.

I've italicized the ballots of the voters I suspect you'll be most interested in. You can see all the ballots here.
