AP top 25: Not much movement despite wacky weekend

The Red Raiders remain stagnant.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

This past Saturday, the college basketball landscape was turned on its head. Six of the top 10 teams in the country suffered a loss this past week including No. 1, 2 and 3. Despite all this chaos, everything stayed the same for the most part. Only two team fell from the rankings and both of those teams were already at the bottom. Only Oklahoma fell further than five spots and even they were able to stay in the poll despite two disappointing losses. Truly goes to show how crazy this season has been where even the craziest weekend of the year can’t shake up this poll. Then again, every weekend is a crazy weekend this year.

Red Raider fans will be disappointing to know that Tech did not move up any despite the 2-0 showing over the week. Even though teams above them lost, it’s important to know that most of those teams still have fewer losses and lost to quality teams. Purdue now joins the Red Raiders with four losses, however the last of those losses come at the hands of No. 2 Michigan State. Tech will have plenty more opportunities coming up with ranked Oklahoma coming to Lubbock this Tuesday.
