NCAA Basketball Rankings: San Diego State Rebounds 1 Week After Loss To Colorado State

The latest USA Today Coaches Poll is out for college basketball and the Kentucky Wildcats are still the No. 1 team.

The latest USA Today/ESPN Coaches Top 25 Basketball Poll is out and the Kentucky Wildcats remain the No. 1 team in the nation. In the Mountain West, the San Diego St. Aztecs rebounded from No. 17 last week to No. 14 this week. However, it wasn't quite that easy since the Boise St. Broncos took the Aztecs to the final buzzer and only won by two points, 58-56. They defeated TCU over the weekend. UNLV dropped three spots from No. 13 to No. 16 following a loss to the Wyoming Cowboys over the weekend.

The Murray St. Racers remain the only undefeated team in the country with a 23-0 record. They tied with the Florida Gators for the No. 7 spot.

No Pac-12 teams made the top 25, as expected. The Denver Pioneers defeated the Middle Tenn. St. Blue Raiders on Saturday, but the Blue Raiders still received six votes.
