Week 3 College Basketball Rankings: Still No Mountain West Teams
But it’s getting closer
Who will be the first to get a ranking?
Another week and another edition of the Associated Press Top 25 rankings for college basketball.
Still, no Mountain West teams appear in the rankings. However, the Colorado State Rams are really close to getting in and it is only a matter of time.
The San Diego State Aztecs did themselves no favors by getting embarrassed by USC in the final of the Wooden Legacy the day after Thanksgiving.
Here is the new AP Top 25, and it features a major shakeup all around.
- Iowa State
- Michigan State
- Seton Hall
A lot of changes all throughout, and Duke enters No. 1 after a thrilling game against Gonzaga. Colorado State got more votes and is the sixth team in the Others Receiving Votes category with 59.
In other news, Utah State is on a bit of a roll after a frustrating loss to UC Davis to start the year. The Aggies responded by beating Richmond and Oklahoma. They have games against St. Mary’s and BYU within the next week and a half, so there is certainly a path for Utah State to get some votes if they can knock off on or both of those teams.
Air Force and Fresno State also have just one loss, although neither program has a very noticeable win on its resume. Wyoming has yet to lose a game, although their schedule hasn’t been favorable, either.
Now, an Aztec victory against Michigan on Saturday could be eye-popping for the voters, although the way they looked against the Trojans was not promising one bit.
For now, it seems to be only a matter of time before Colorado State gets in the Top 25, and Utah State is creeping up right behind if they can sneak out a victory over the next 10 days.
