There were no real surprises in this week’s AP Poll. Purdue played just once in the past week, and it was a dominant 29 points win over Butler on a neutral floor. Baylor stayed at No. 1 with its comeback win at Oregon, while Duke never really played anyone. That means Purdue holds at the No. 3 spot in this week’s AP Poll.
