2017-18 Men’s College Basketball Week 16 TV and Announcer Schedule

The ranks of the top four teams of the Associated Press Top 25 poll — Virginia, Michigan State, Villanova and Xavier — remain unchanged from last week.

Wins over Virginia Tech and Clemson vaulted the Duke Blue Devils back into the Top 5 in at No. 5, up seven spots from last week.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders and the
Gonzaga Bulldogs were tied for the
No. 6 spot. Kansas jumped five spots to No. 8 after beating West Virginia, followed by Purdue (which slid three spots to No. 9) and North Carolina — which has won five straight and climbed four spots to No. 10.

Kelvin Sampson’s Houston Cougars checked in at No. 23 for the program’s first AP poll appearance since spending a week at No. 25 in December 2005. Before that, Houston’s last poll appearance was a week at No. 25 in January 1993. Those are the program’s only appearances since future NBA great Hakeem Olajuwon was the Cougars’ big man on the way to being the No. 1 overall draft pick in 1984.

Middle Tennessee checked in at No. 24, marking the first AP Top 25 poll appearance in program history.

The following is the Week 16 men’s college basketball regular season schedule featuring the Top 25 teams (according to the weekly Associated Press poll), including dates, start times, TV networks and scheduled announcers. All times Eastern.
