College Basketball Rankings February 22: Purdue Just Outside Top 25

New, 72 comments

Two games, two wins, but not back in the top 25

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

It was a very productive week last week or Purdue. The Boilers had a pair of games and won both, including one on the road. Even better, Maryland moved into the top 30 of the NET rankings, thus moving our home win over the Terrapins onto tier 1 of the NET rankings. We now have four such wins (Maryland, Indiana, and Ohio State x2), and Michigan State is closing in on the #73 spot (making the road win tier 1 if they get there).

All that work has moved Purdue on the cusp of the top 25 agains but not quite there yet.
