NCAA Basketball: Incarnate Word at Purdue Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

There was a paucity of college basketball this week with the Christmas holiday and COVID cancellations. Purdue played a game and won relatively easily before closing things down for the holiday. That, of course, means there was very little movement in the rankings. Purdue will stay at No. 3 in this week’s poll before hosting Nicholls and getting back into conference play next week.
