NCAA Basketball Rankings – 1/16/2012

Rankings as of 3:05pm on 1/16/2012.  Sagarin Ratings for games though 1/15/2012.  AP Poll as of 1/16/2012.

Previous rankings are here.

Three new teams this week: Marquette, New Mexico, and Wichita State.  Marquette and New Mexico return to the top 25 after a week off, whereas Wichita State makes its top 25 debut in the StatsInTheWild Top 25 NCAA Basketball rankings.  The three teams that dropped out of the top 25 this week are Kansas State, Louisville, and Minnesota.  Wisconsin’s victory over Purdue caused them both to move ten spots in opposite directions with Wisconsin climbing and Purdue falling.

 

(Note: The Missouri Valley Conference will now be represented by red.  In order for the Pac-12 to earn back their color, they will need to get a team in the top 25 and have all the MVC teams fall out of the top 25.  Until that happens, Pac-12 teams will be listed in the “other” category.)

Breakdown by conference: 2, 5, 8, 3, 0, 2, 3, 2
