College Basketball Rankings November 29: Purdue Moves to #2

Not quite history.

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska Omaha at Purdue Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue got some favors last week. Gonzaga beating #2 UCLA bey 20 points was significant. Duke then turning around and edging the No. 1 Zags also helped and it looked like Purdue could move to No. 1 for the first time in program history. Of course, it is Duke, and in Coach K’s final season they had to be ranked No. 1 at some point. They moved from 5 to 1 after #4 Kansas also lost. Purdue still moved up one spot to #2 after blasting Omaha on Friday afternoon. It is the highest ranking for the program since 1988.
