In the latest AP NCAA Basketball Top 25 Rankings, the Missouri Tigers fell from No. 9 to No. 15 following their 89-76 loss to the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday. The Tigers are now 14-2 on the season.
The Duke Blue Devils remained the unanimous selection for the top team in the nation. They won a close game against the Maryland Terrapins over the weekend. The rest of the top seven remained unchanged with the Ohio St. Buckeyes, the Kansas Jayhawks, the Syracuse Orange, the Pittsburgh Panthers, the San Diego St. Aztecs and the Villanova Wildcats taking spots 2-7. The Aztecs are the lowest-ranked undefeated team, being the No. 6 team with a 17-0 record. Pitt is 15-1 at no. 5.
The BYU Cougars (16-1) improved from No. 15 to No. 11 and could eventually give the Mountain West Conference a second top-10 team in the polls.
Conference play has begun, so there will be plenty of hard-fought action among conference teams inside the top 25, particularly in the Big East.
