Just the one Mountain West team.
The latest Associated Press college basketball rankings are out and there was a lot of movement. On the national front, there is a new No. 1 team in Kansas and they are the fifth different team to take the top spot which is the most movement at the to pre-New Year’s Day.
Within the Mountain West, it is San Diego State who is the lone ranked team at No. 20. They have not played since their last-second win over San Jose State back on Dec. 8, and due to other movement climb five spots.
The Aztecs get a decent opponent on Dec. 21 as they take on Utah down in Los Angeles as a chance to maybe move up in the rankings.
Utah State is earning votes even after its loss to BYU over the weekend. For a second team to be ranked it will take a while for the Aggies to move into the polls. They do face San Diego State early in league play so that would be an opportunity for Utah State to re-enter the polls.
