AP top 25: Steady at the top

Texas Tech makes history by remaining in the top 10 for the second consecutive week

The top 25 settled a little this past week after a tumultuous week prior. Ten of the teams lost over the past week and five of those, No. 2 West Virginia, No. 8 Texas Tech, No. 10 Xavier, No. 16 TCU, and No. 18 Miami had losses to other teams in the top 25.

TCU was the only ranked team to lose twice over the past week with one of the losses coming on the road to an emotional Texas team the day of the Andrew Jones announcement. No. 13 Seton Hall and No. 4 Michigan State are winners of the ouch award for the week. Seton Hall lost at unranked Marquette by 20 and Michigan State lost at home to in-state, and previously unranked, Michigan by 10.

Teams on the move are new No. 4 Oklahoma, No. 15 North Carolina, and No. 17 Auburn who all moved up five spots. The team with the biggest drop is current No. 24 TCU who fell eight spots. Seton Hall fell six spots to No. 19.

Wichita State fans are left scratching their heads today as the Shockers fell two spots to No. 7 after winning two road games, one by 35 points. Another team left wondering a little is the Red Raiders. Texas Tech remained at No. 8 this week after losing at then No. 9 Oklahoma and beating then No. 2 West Virginia at home. On the bright side it is the first time in program history that Texas Tech has been ranked in the top 10 for two consecutive weeks.
