The San Diego St. Aztecs (24-6, 10-4) continued their impressive streak this last week, beating the Boise St. Broncos 66-53 on Wednesday and the TCU Horned Frogs 98-92 on Saturday. As such, they unsurprisingly rose a little higher in this week's Coaches Poll, jumping from No. 23 to No. 21.

The Aztecs benefited from the vacuum created by the struggling Notre Dame Fighting Irish (who moved from No. 19 to No. 23) and the Louisville Cardinals (who went from No. 18 to unranked). The teams to beat in the upcoming NCAA tournament still appear to be the Kentucky Wildcats and the Syracuse Orange, who have remained No. 1 and No. 2 respectively for another week.

San Diego had one game remaining in the regular season, squaring off against Boise State on Thursday. Here is a look at the Coaches Poll Top 10:

Rank Team (1st-place votes) Record Previous
1 Kentucky (31) 30-1 1
2 Syracuse 30-1 2
3 Kansas 26-5 4
4 North Carolina 27-4 6
5 Missouri 27-4 8
6 Duke 26-5 3
7 Ohio State 24-5 10
8 Michigan State 24-7 5
9 Marquette 25-6 7
10 Murray State 30-1 9
