New, 45 comments

A rough week in the Bahamas has ended Purdue’s top 25 streak.

NCAA Basketball: Battle 4 Atlantis-Arizona vs Purdue Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The newest college basketball rankings are out and Purdue’s streak of 41 weeks in the AP Poll is over. After losing to Tennessee and Western Kentucky in the Bahamas Purdue is out of the top 25 for the first time in 42 polls. Purdue had the 6th longest active streak of being ranked, and it was set to move that up to 5th had it stayed in because Arizona was ranked for 100 consecutive weeks, but also fell out.

Here is the current top 25, with the number of first place votes and regular votes.

  1. Duke (65) 1,625
  2. Kansas 1,531
  3. Michigan State 1,481
  4. Villanova 1,435
  5. Notre Dame 1,297
  6. Florida 1,272
  7. Kentucky 1,179
  8. Wichita State 1,134
  9. Texas A&M 1,130
  10. Miami (FL) 1,001
  11. Cincinnati 972
  12. Minnesota 929
  13. North Carolina 922
  14. USC 681
  15. Gonzaga 666
  16. Baylor 576
  17. Louisville 568
  18. Virginia 510
  19. West Virginia 418
  20. Arizona State 383
  21. Xavier 370
  22. Texas Tech 247
  23. TCU 133
  24. Alabama 128
  25. Creighton 124

Arizona State, Virginia, TCU, and Texas Tech moved into the top 25, replacing Arizona, Purdue, Seton Hall, and St. Mary’s.

The good news is that it will likely be a short departure if Purdue takes care of business this week against Louisville, Maryland, and Northwestern. Here are the “others receiving votes:

Seton Hall 87, Nevada 61, UCLA 56, Purdue 56, Arizona 34, Washington St 25, Texas 22, Arkansas 17, Tennessee 14, Providence 9, Northwestern 8, Rhode Island 6, Saint Mary's (Cal) 5, Georgia 5, Oklahoma 3, UNLV 2, Vermont 1, Texas Arlington 1, Maryland 1.

That means Purdue plays against No. 17 this week and two teams receiving votes. Should we take care of business we will begin a new streak in a week.

UPDATE: Purdue misses the coaches poll top 25 by 10 points:

1 Duke

2 Kansas

3 Michigan St

4 Villanova

5 Notre Dame

6 Florida

7 Kentucky

8 Wichita St.

9 Cincinnati

10 Texas A&M

16 Baylor

17 Louisville

18 Southern California

19 West Virginia

20 Xavier

21 Arizona State

22 Texas Tech

23 Creighton

24 Seton Hall
