You lose, you drop.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Penn State Matthew OHaren-USA TODAY Sports

It is clear Purdue has work to do. Saturday was better against Penn State, but since achieving the No. 1 ranking things have not looked good for the most part. The Boilers lost to a red hot Wisconsin team last Monday, but at least the Badgers followed it up with a good win over Iowa and a solid road win at Maryland. They are playing like one of the best teams in the country right now.

That loss dropped Purdue, but there were a few other top 10 losses in a week that saw some big shakeups in the rankings. The good news is that the Boilers still have the inside track to a solid finish and a No. 1 seed in March, but it has work to do. It needs to improve its defense and get out of its current funk. Even then, 13-2 and in the top 10 in mid-January is a good spot to complain from.
