Kentucky is back in the Top 10 of the AP Poll

After wins over Georgia and Alabama, Kentucky is back in the top ten of the AP College Basketball Poll. The Cats moved up from No. 14 to No. 10 in the new rankings, just ahead of Louisville at No. 11.

Gonzaga remains the No. 1 team in the country, followed by Baylor, Duke, Auburn, and Butler. Michigan State dropped from No. 8 to No. 15 following yesterday’s embarrassing loss to Purdue. Ohio State also dropped, falling from No. 11 to No. 21. The Buckeyes have lost four straight since beating Kentucky in Las Vegas.

    How in the world is Ohio St still in the top 25 after losing 4 straight!? That’s ridiculous

    It’s going to be very interesting what the AP does to SDST and Auburn when or if they lose a game?

    Indiana is 13-3 with wins over FSU by (16pts) and Ohio State (12pts). How are they not ranked?

    And I still ain’t buyin’ what they’re selling on San Diego State.

      getting throttled by a bad Wisconsin team isn’t helping their case along with home loss to Arkansas. Also punched hard by Marlyand, even though they are a good team a 16 pt loss to them isn’t a good look.
