The first batch of rankings are out.
- The latest AP Top 25 Poll dropped the Kentucky Wildcats down to 19, a four-spot drop, despite beating North Florida by 40 points in their only game last week. Purdue (5), UConn (8), Alabama (11) and Tennessee (13) are the teams who moved past the Wildcats. Houston is now the No. 1 overall team.
- Andy Katz’s Power 36 has UK at 27.
- The Athletic’s Seth Davis has the Cats at 18.
Good Monday Morning. It’s always a good week after a win over Louisville on the gridiron.
After a wild week of college basketball, the Kentucky Wildcats could see themselves move up, or down honestly, in the newest edition of the AP Top-25.
North Carolina saw themselves drop two games in the PK85. Purdue made a national statement by destroying both Gonzaga and Duke, and Houston is almost certainly going to see themselves reach No. 1 in the rankings for the first time since, when? The mid-80s?
I’d expect Kentucky to stay put at No. 15, possibly move up one or two spots.
Now the 2 losses out of the gate don’t seem as bad.
