2017-18 Men’s College Basketball Week 12 TV and Announcer Schedule

For the week of Jan. 22, the top three of Villanova, Virginia and Purdue remained in the same top three spots as last week. As for the Purdue Boilermakers (8-0 Big Ten), they have won 15 straight games and remain at No. 3, their highest since being ranked No. 2 in March 1988. They have won three straight Big Ten games by at least 23 points for the first time in school history.

Duke inched up a spot to No. 4, while Kansas jumped five spots to No. 5 after winning at West Virginia on Jan. 15.

With victories over Northwestern and Minnesota last week, the Ohio State Buckeyes continue to rise in the Top 25 poll, making the biggest week-to-week jump for any team, moving up nine spots to No. 13. The North Carolina Tar Heels rose five spots to No. 10, after home wins versus 18th-ranked Clemson and Georgia Tech.

The Kentucky Wildcats, normally a staple of the weekly Associated Press Top 25, are out of the poll for the first time since March 2014, snapping a 68-week stretch. They’ve lost three of their last five games overall (as of Jan. 22) and are 0-2 against ranked teams this year.
