NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Purdue Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

After a week where Purdue got a pair of tier 1 NET wins and two teams ahead of it lost by double digits a move up was inevitable. Purdue now has three wins over teams in the AP top 25 and has plenty of chances to get a couple more before all is said and done. In the latest AP poll Purdue took advantage of losses by Arizona and Kansas to move back into the top 5.
