College basketball rankings: Gonzaga, Kansas still battling for No. 1 in AP Top 25, Michigan in top five
The latest AP Top 25 college hoops rankings also have two mid-major unbeatens in the Top 25: Buffalo and Furman
There wasn't too much of a shakeup in the rankings this week, despite 10 ranked teams taking losses over the previous seven days. But a fine surprise: Furman, out of the SoCon, is ranked 25th in the polls.
It's the first time in school history that Furman's cracked the AP rankings. Bob Richey's team is 8-0 and owns road wins over Villanova and Loyola-Chicago.
With Furman breaking through, nine of the 11 unbeaten teams in college basketball are now ranked. The only ones on the outside looking in are 7-0 St. John's and 6-0 Houston, which was held out despite winning at home against previously ranked Oregon over the weekend. Oregon dropped out of the polls this week, as did Purdue and Texas.
