Associated Press AP Poll Top 25 Update
The newly minted AP Top 25 poll is now out for men’s college basketball. This week, there was not much movement compared to previous weeks, but we still saw some shake-up in the poll.
Below we take a look at the movers and the teams who fell. There were no new teams who entered into the Top 25 this week.
Below we take a look at the Top 10 and who could make a move next week.
Duke, Purdue, Gonzaga, and UCLA; How did the Rest of the Top 10 Look?
It was a pretty quiet week for the Top 10 this week, especially with the cancellation of some games due to COVID-19. There was minimal movement in the Top 10, and only one new team appeared.
Former top-ranked teams Duke, Purdue, Gonzaga, and UCLA, round out the top five and have been in those spots over the last few weeks. Kansas sits at number six and has been playing great basketball over the last few weeks.
USC is at number seven in this week’s poll once again. Arizona moved up from the ninth spot to number eight. At number nine, we have Auburn, who moved into the top 10 this week after their win over LSU this past week.
Michigan State rounds out the top 10 as they sit at number 10. Iowa State was the lone team who dropped from the top 10 as they fell to Baylor. They moved from #8 to #11.
We have a lot of great matchups for the upcoming week. Listed below are Game Times for some of the top 10 teams.
