New, 50 comments

A Cancun Challenge title and losses from other teams ahead of us means Purdue moves up in advance of Louisville.

The new college basketball rankings are out and Purdue has moved up after three wins last week. They moved up mostly because of other teams losing as opposed to what they did on the floor, but moving up is moving up. The Boilers are now 15 in the AP Poll, up two spots from last week:

Purdue has another shot at a huge boost this week with a road game at No. 14 Louisville. You can't help but feel Purdue would be comfortably in the top 10 had it beaten Villanova. Butler is the biggest jumper this week, moving in at No. 18 after not being ranked last week. Indiana dropped 10 spots to No. 13.
