Kentucky back in the AP Top 25

Kentucky’s recent winning streak was enough to earn them a spot in this week’s AP Top 25 poll. After two weeks out of the rankings, the Cats are back, coming in at No. 23.

Virgnia remains the No. 1 team in the country, followed by Michigan State and Xavier. Auburn and Tennessee also represent the SEC, checking in at No. 14 and No. 16 respectively.

    We should be 20. Ahead of WVA. We beat them on their court

      Exactly. And Cincinnati and Gonzaga in the top 10 is laughable. Florida handled them both. Just shows how good the SEC is!

    They can keep their top 25, with their Nevadas, Florida States, St Marys, and Houstons like I said in the Show Thread comments. Oh, they dumped Florida State…good catch, they were only beaten by 20. We know what we have, and nobody will want to see us in their bracket.
    Right, Wichita State?

      Wow. St. Mary’s has us beat in the polls…!

      That’s laughable. They are only there because the WCC is garbage. Georgia beat ST Mary’s! On a side note the SEC has the most top 25 wins out of conference by far and we are 11-7 vs the vastly overrated big 12!

    I don’t think we’re deserving of a Top25 ranking at this point…just like several others in the poll. But if we win the next to games, we definitely deserve it, and should be going into the post-season ranked around #20. That would also likely mean we’re no worse than a 5-seed.

      Based off of SOS, and quadrant 1 and 2 wins we should definitely be in the top 25

      Especially considering 7 loss UNC is in the top 10

    • Correction, it’s UNCheat.

      Actually we should be ranked higher according to the RPI. The SEC is the best conference in the country and has the most top 25 and top 10 wins out of conference to prove it! Plus 9 teams should make it.

    Yes! Uk back in top 25. Lets celebrate.

      I am mad. Uk should never be out of top 25 much less top 10.

      It happened in 1998, 2011, and 2014 as well… quit crying, bitch. 😉

    The way college basketball is playing out this season, I don’t worry much about the polls. Just keep building toward peaking at the right time for the tournaments.

    But is the gap really that far between us and St. Mary’s?!

      I’ve watched St Mary’s, they’ll be gone in the second week at BEST as will Nevada and Houston.
