New, 16 comments

Purdue moves up three spots in the AP Poll to No. 17.

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

After earning a hard-fought road win over a top 100 team within our own conference and knocking off a top 15 team at home we could expect the Boilers to move up in the polls this week. That is exactly what happened, even though not a lot of teams in the top 25 lost last week. the only teams ahead of Purdue that lost last week were No. 13 Wisconsin, No. 9 Louisville, No. 7 West Virginia,and No. 1 Villanova. Purdue had a tie to all four, as they beat Wisconsin, but have lost to Louisville and Villanova. they also lost to West Virginia in the secret scrimmage before the season, but YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT SECRET SCRIMMAGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, here is this week's AP Poll:
