What Were Other Notable Moves Made This Week in AP Poll

NCAA Basketball Associated Press Top 25 Update

The AP Top 25 poll for men’s college basketball is officially available. There was a lot of movement this week compared to previous weeks, and we have our first back-to-back week of change at the top since Baylor took over the top spot six weeks ago.

There was also quite a bit of movement within the Top 10, and we also saw some big drops, and two new programs entered the fray this week. We take a look at all of that and more below in this week’s AP Poll Top 25 Update.

What Were Other Notable Moves Made This Week?

Kentucky held at #12 this week even after a loss to Auburn. Texas Tech moved up to #13 and saw a rise of five spots to get there. Villanova fell three spots to #14, and USC was bumped up one spot to #15.

Ohio State has been able to play some consistent basketball over the past month as they have now worked their way up to #16 after bumping up three spots this week. Providence and Tennessee also made some big rises up the polls as Providence moved up four spots to #17, and Tennessee moved up six spots to take over the #18 spot.

LSU fell to #19 and dropped six spots this week as their struggles have continued. UConn moved up to #20 from #25 as they raised five spots in the polls this week.

Xavier dropped one spot to #21, and both Iowa State and Illinois were the biggest fallers of the week. Iowa State dropped to #23 in the country after being #15 a week ago, and Illinois fell to #24 from #17.

Marquette enters the poll at #22, and Davidson enters the Top 25 at the very end. They were the benefactors of Loyola-Chicago and Texas dropping out from the poll this past week.
