AP Top 25 College Basketball

  1. Purdue Boilermakers – No change at the top despite taking their first loss of the season. Another ranked team, Ohio State, up next.
  1. Houston Cougars – Another perfect move saw the Cougars move up a spot this week. They have a pair of winnable games coming up.
  1. Kansas Jayhawks – Moving up a spot this week, Kansas has a tough path ahead, with a pair of road games this week.
  1. UConn Huskies – A loss to ranked Xavier saw the Huskies drop 2 spots. With Providence up next, could it be 2 losses in a row?
  1. Arizona Wildcats – No change at #5 and 2 home games upcoming for Arizona.
  1. Texas Longhorns – Another team remaining in the same spot, the Longhorns have a tough one against Kansas State up next.
  1. Alabama Crimson Tide – A big win over Mississippi State helped Alabama move up a spot. 2 very winnable games this week might see them move up again.
  1. Tennessee Volunteers – Despite winning again, the Vols dropped a spot. A difficult game against Mississippi State is up next.
  1. Gonzaga Bulldogs – A slight upward move the Bulldogs, but a tough weekend game against Santa Clara on the horizon.
  1. UCLA Bruins – The Bruins moved up a spot this week, but with USC and Utah coming this week, can they continue to move forward?
  1. Virginia Cavaliers – Back-to-back wins helped the Cavs move up 2 spots, but with Pitt and Syracuse to come this week, they may stall or fall.
  1. Miami Hurricanes – The Hurricanes are rolling with 9 straight wins, and I like them to add 2 more this week.
  1. Arkansas Razorbacks – After losing their last games, the Razorbacks dropped 4 spots, and now have 2 more ranked opponents this week.
  1. Wisconsin Badgers – Wisconsin moved up a spot and could climb higher with 2 winnable games this week.
  1. Indiana Hoosiers – The Hoosiers got back to winning ways and have a real chance at extending their win streak to 4 this week.
  1. Duke Blue Devils – Duke moved up a spot and will look to climb higher with 2 conference games this week.
  1. TCU Horned Frogs – The focus is on football with TCU right now, but this team is moving in the right direction on the hard court.
  1. Xavier Musketeers – With 8 straight wins, including once against UConn, this is a team to watch.
  1. Baylor Bears – The slumping Bears are down 7 spots this week and could fall further with TCU up next.
  1. Missouri Tigers – Missouri has won 3 in a row, but they have ranked Arkansas up next.
  1. New Mexico Lobos – The Lobos remained unbeaten this season and should maintain that streak this week.
  1. Auburn Tigers – Despite winning, Auburn dropped 2 spots this week and have ranked Arkansas on the horizon.
  1. Charleston Cougars – This team is as hot as it gets and should continue rolling this week.
  1. Ohio State Buckeyes – 3 wins in a row put the Buckeyes back in the top 25, but #1 Purdue is up next.
  1. Iowa State Cyclones – The Cyclones are back in the top 25, but I don’t think it’ll last long, as they have a pair of tough games this week.
