NCAA Basketball Rankings: Villanova Moves Up One Spot; Temple Falls One

Despite going 2-0 this week with resounding victories against Richmond and Saint Joseph's, Temple actually fell a spot in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll to No. 24. It will have a chance to gain some major ground as it travels to Cameron Indoor Stadium on Wednesday night to take on the newly crowned No. 1 Duke Blue Devils.

Villanova moved up a spot to No. 14 after winning two closer than expected games against Seton Hall and DePaul. Its schedule doesn't get any easier this week as it hosts No. 20 Syracuse and No. 25 St. John's.
