Weekly Polls: Down to #3

-USA Today Images

After a loss to Xavier, the Wildcats have fallen a few pegs down to No. 3 in the AP Poll. In the Coaches’ Poll, they are ranked No. 2.

Kansas has reclaimed the top spot in both polls, with Michigan State right behind in the AP Poll.

As for Xavier, the only other ranked team in the Big East, it remains ranked at No. 5 in both polls. Despite having an impressive win to knock Villanova off of the top spot, the Musketeers were upset a few days later by the unranked Seton Hall Pirates. The Pirates have not cracked the top 25, but they are hanging close in the receiving votes section. Providence is now out of both polls officially, after also losing to Seton Hall.
