College Basketball Rankings February 15: Purdue Slides Out of Top 25

New, 31 comments

A second narrow road loss was too much to keep Purdue in the top 25.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Minnesota Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue is roughly two possessions from being in the top 20, if not top 15. Instead, they now have narrow road losses to Minnesota and Maryland, where the Boilers led entering the final 15 seconds but could not close the deal. It is frustrating, and it was enough to knock Purdue out of the top 25 this week.

Purdue is still receiving votes, however.
