After a 2-0 week that included a victory over a top-25 opponent, WVU men’s basketball has climbed in the latest ranking from the Associated Press.
The Mountaineers check in at No. 12 this week in the AP Top 25, up five spots from a week ago. West Virginia also moved to No. 10 in the latest round of NCAA NET rankings.
There was plenty of movement elsewhere in the AP poll that impacted other teams from the Big 12 Conference. While Gonzaga keeps hold of the top spot, Baylor moved to No. 2 after its upset of Kansas, subsequently dropping the Jayhawks to No. 6. Texas Tech also dropped one spot to No. 23 after falling to the Mountaineers at the WVU Coliseum.
