A win over a ranked team wasn’t quite enough to get us back in the rankings.

In advance of hosting the defending champions this week Purdue continues to receive votes, but is outside the AP top 25 in this week’s poll. The Win over VCU on Friday helped, but Purdue probably needed the win over Florida State to get back in the top 25. The good news is that the Boilers are close and there are still chances at some good wins with Virginia and Butler in the next few weeks. Win both and finish the non-conference 8-3 would be perfectly fine.

Here is this week’s AP Poll:

  1. Louisville (48) 1,599
  2. Kansas (3) 1,497
  3. Maryland 1,446
  4. Michigan (9) 1,429
  5. Virginia (5) 1,424
  6. Ohio State 1,244
  7. North Carolina 1,162
  8. Kentucky 1,096
  9. Gonzaga 1,095
  10. Duke 1,083
  11. Michigan State 964
  12. Arizona 875
  13. Oregon 785
  14. Auburn 698
  15. Memphis 652
  16. Seton Hall 629
  17. Florida State 562

  19. Dayton 386
  20. Colorado 371
  21. Tennessee 331
  22. Washington 222
  23. Villanova 192
  24. Butler 165

In the coaches poll, Purdue was just outside last week at No. 26, but for some reason slid further. This includes falling behind a team it beat head to head AND that lost twice last week.
