San Diego State loss doesn’t impact them.

The latest college basketball rankings were kind to San Diego State who only dropped one spot to fifth even after losing to UNLV, 66-63, over the weekend.

The initial impression was that the Aztecs would tumble with a quadrant three home loss to a Rebel team that was .500 heading into this game.

However, other top-five teams lost and barely took a hit. Baylor was No. 1 and fell to then-No. 3 Kansas and dropped just one spot, Gonzaga went from second to third after losing to BYU. So, it is a trend by the voters to not drop these high ranked teams too much even in a varying degree of losses.

This bodes well for San Diego State who is still in the mix for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Aztecs have just two games left before the Mountain West tournament with, they take on Colorado State at home and the finale is on th road to Nevada.

Utah State is riding a five-game winning streak and earning a few votes in the AP top 25 but they are not getting any coaches to vote for them in the USA TODAY poll.
