College basketball rankings: Colorado enters AP poll

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffaloes are ranked after winning the Charleston Classic in South Carolina.

The Colorado Buffaloes are ranked in the Associated Press basketball poll, the results of which were released on Monday. Tad Boyle's crew checks in at No. 23 after winning the Charleston Classic in South Carolina last week.

Colorado's ranking is its first in the AP poll in 16 seasons. In the Coaches Poll, Colorado is two spots out of the top 25, trailing Texas and San Diego State for the honor.

The three wins in Charleston moved the Buffs to 4-0 on the season, including wins over Dayton (67-57), No. 16 Baylor (60-58), and Murray State (81-74).

The ranking certainly marks the high point of college basketball in Boulder. In Boyle's first two years, the Buffs won 24 games each season, setting and then tying the all-time best win total for the program. Now in his third season, an undefeated record and early-season tournament win sets Colorado up for another great year.

Colorado State, at 2-0, received two points in the Coaches Poll.
