Another crazy week shakes up the rankings.

For those lamenting about Purdue's insufferable lot in the college basketball universe the Boilers are one of very few teams that has been ranked in every single top 25 poll this season. That is not exactly a bad place to be if you ask me. That trend continues this week with the coaches poll:

1 Villanova 20-3 753 11 4 3 4/17
2 Maryland 21-3 749 11 3 1 2/9
3 Oklahoma 19-3 708 3 2 -1 1/8
4 Xavier 21-2 683 0 5 1 5/NR
5 Iowa 19-4 674 3 7 2 4/NR
6 Kansas 19-4 670 2 6 0 1/7
7 Virginia 19-4 616 0 9 2 4/13
8 North Carolina 19-4 599 1 1 -7 1/11
9 Michigan St 20-4 567 1 10 1 1/13
10 West Virginia 19-4 490 0 12 2 7/23
11 Miami-Florida 18-4 433 0 15 4 9/NR

16 Purdue 19-5 292 0 16 0 8/24
17 Dayton 19-3 236 0 24 7 24/NR
17 Providence 18-6 236 0 11 -6 9/NR
19 Baylor 17-6 221 0 13 -6 13/25
20 South Carolina 20-3 185 0 23 3 15/NR
21 Kentucky 17-6 178 0 19 -2 1/19
22 Indiana 19-5 119 0 21 -1 14/NR
23 Southern California 18-5 105 0 31 8 25/NR
24 Wichita St. 17-6 91 0 22 -2 11/NR
25 Texas 16-7 69 0 37 12

As you can see, Purdue does not drop at all after losing to a top 5 team.
