2017-18 Men’s College Basketball Week 10 TV and Announcer Schedule

Heading into this week, the Villanova Wildcats returned to the top spot in Monday’s new poll after an upset-filled week of Jan. 1 that included losses by No. 1 Michigan State and No. 2 Duke.

The second-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers — which beat then-No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners and star freshman Trae Young last week — earned 12 first-place votes and secured the program’s highest ranking since December 1959 during Jerry West’s senior season. They have not lost since falling to Texas A&M on opening night. That run includes a December home win against Virginia and Saturday’s win against the aforementioned Sooners.

No. 8 Texas Tech (14-1) was the week’s biggest climber in the AP Top 25 poll. It jumped up 10 spots after earning its first win at Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse in 18 tries along with a win against Kansas State for the program’s best ranking since being seventh in March 1996.

Fifth-ranked Purdue (15-2) moved up eight spots for its highest ranking since February 2010 and carries an 11-game winning streak into Tuesday’s game at Michigan.

No. 13 Seton Hall (14-2) also moved up eight spots, matching the biggest one-week AP Top 25 jump in its history.

The following is the Week 10 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.
