After two lackluster wins Purdue gains little ground on the top 2.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

It was more of the same this week. The top 3 has not changed at all as Villanova, Virginia, and Purdue all won both of their games in the past week Villnova was challenged slightly, but beat Creighton and Seton Hall at home. Virginia had Louisville and Syracuse stay somewhat close, but pulled way in the end. Purdue held serve at home against Maryland and was a little shaky against Rutgers on the road, but won. That means the top 3 do not change this week in the AP top 25.

  1. VIllanova (48) 1,608
  2. Virginia (16) 1,572
  3. Purdue (1) 1,500
  4. Michigan State (1,407
  5. Xavier 1,350
  6. Cincinnati 1,305
  7. Texas Tech 1,182
  8. Auburn 1,138
  9. Duke 1,075
  10. Kansas 1,015
  11. St. Mary’s 895
  12. Gonzaga 851
  13. Arizona 816
  14. Ohio State 747
  15. Tennessee 739
  16. Clemson 720
  17. Oklahoma 636
  18. Rhode Island 486
  19. West Virginia 457
  20. Michigan 331
  21. North Carolina 304
  22. Wichita State 295
  23. Nevada 205
  24. Kentucky 133
  25. Miami (FL) 76

Things obviously get tougher this week with No. 14 Ohio State coming to Purdue before a trip to No. 4 Michigan State.

The coaches poll will be out shortly.
