Purdue leads the Big Ten alone and is also climbing the rankings.

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

There are only a few more weeks of the AP Poll this season and Purdue is probably going to finish the year somewhere in the top 25. After two more dominant wins at home Purdue is on the move up again. Last week the Boilers were 14th, but with Nevada losing once and Marquette losing twice we moved up this week.

  1. Gonzaga (42) 1,578
  2. Virginia (21) 1,553
  3. North Carolina 1,428
  4. Duke (1) 1,399
  5. Tennessee 1,366
  6. Kentucky 1,274
  7. Michigan 1,216
  8. Texas Tech 1,100
  9. Michigan State 1,039
  10. LSU 1,005
  11. Purdue 999
  12. Houston 895
  13. Kansas 798
  14. Florida State 702
  15. Virginia Tech 668
  16. Marquette 626
  17. Nevada 579
  18. Kansas State 499
  19. Buffalo 437
  20. Cincinnati 408
  21. Wisconsin 322
  22. Wofford 269
  23. Villanova 214
  24. Maryland 207
  25. Central Florida 48

Purdue officially moves up three spots from last week and is extremely close to cracking the top 10. Just imagine if we had non-conference wins over Florida State and Virginia Tech, too.
