The latest ESPN/USA Today Coaches' poll is out and, as you know, the Kansas Jayhawks lost their hold on the top spot. KU basketball drops from No. 1 to No. 2 while the Duke Blue Devils take the sop spot in the latest NCAA basketball rankings. Texas remains in the top five at No. 5 with a loss to Nebraska on Saturday. Here are the details on the rest of the top five.
The rest of the Big 12 didn't see any change.
Texas A&M was ranked No. 17 last week and that's where they stand in the latest edition of the Coaches' poll. Likewise, Missouri saw no change as they remain at No. 21.
Texas A&M is 21-5 on the season and 8-4 in the Big 12. They remain at No. 17 after beating Iowa State and Oklahoma State last week. Coming up for Texas A&M is a Wednesday night game against Oklahoma and going on the road to face Baylor on Saturday.
Missouri beat both Texas Tech and Iowa State in the last week. Neither are particularly impressive wins but it's worth noting that Mizzou finally won a road conference game beating the Cyclones in Ames. Coming up for Missouri is hosting Baylor on Wednesday night and then traveling to Manhattan to take on the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday.
We're still waiting on the AP poll to be released. With the top four teams in the country losing last week, we're expecting to see some change.
