NCAA Basketball Rankings: Villanova Drops A Spot, Temple Holds

The NCAA basketball rankings are out and since only Florida of the top teams lost there was no real movement in the polls this week. Villanova, despite a 4-0 record, dropped from #6 to #7 having been leapfrogged by Kansas. The Wildcats are just 3 points back in the AP top 25 poll. Villanova will play UCLA on Wednesday in the final four of the preseason NIT.

Temple went 2-0 to start the year and remained at #21. The USA Today/coaches poll was a little kinder to the Owls as they came in at #20 while the Villanova Wildcats were at #7 in that poll as well. Here’s the full AP top 25.
