Week 11 AP College Basketball Top 25 Rankings


The Week 11 Associated Press Top 25 college basketball rankings have been released via to show that some major shake-ups have taken place over the past week.

Arizona, Syracuse, and Wisconsin, three of the four remaining undefeated teams in the country, hold the top 3 spots in this week’s rankings. Michigan State takes control of the #4 ranking after defeated an undefeated Ohio State squad early in the week. The undefeated Wichita State Shockers crack the Top 5 in the 5th spot.

Villanova and Florida take the 6 and 7 rankings while Iowa State interestingly moves up a spot from #9 to #8 despite their loss to then-unranked Oklahoma. The Oklahoma State Cowboys at #9 and San Diego State Aztecs at #10 round out the Top 10.

Along with a loss to Michigan State, the Ohio State Buckeyes also fell at home to a tough-nosed Iowa team, dropping the Buckeyes back to the #11 spot while moving Iowa up to #14.

Kansas moves up 3 spots from #18 to #15 after solid wins over Oklahoma on the road and #25 Kansas State in Lawrence.

The Week 11 rankings welcome six new teams to the party.

Cincinnati makes the cut at #19 after wins over Houston and Rutgers. Creighton comes in at #20 after wins over DePaul and Xavier in the newly formed Big East. Pittsburgh takes the 22 slot after marginal victories over Maryland and Wake Forest in the ACC. Saint Louis takes the 24 spot while Oklahoma and UCLA tie for the 25th ranking.

The most interesting developments of the week had to be the Duke Blue Devils and the Oregon Ducks. Oregon has lost three straight games to drop them out of the rankings while Duke, who fell short against Notre Dame last week tanked again on the road this week against Clemson 72-59, which knocked Duke all the way back to the #23 ranking.
