College Basketball Rankings January 23: Purdue Moves Up One

A sweep of Illinois and Penn State keeps Purdue in the top 25 for a 31st straight week.

Make it 31 straight weeks! This week's college basketball AP Poll is out and Purdue is once again ranked for the 31st consecutive week. The Boilers move up one spot after beating Penn State and Illinois in convincing fashion. A much tougher week this week with trips to Michigan State and Nebraska beckons, however, so another sweep would likely mean a bigger jump.
