This week in college basketball didn't have the double-digit movers that we saw a week ago when Texas climbed 10 spots and Oklahoma State fell 11 places. The top six teams held onto their positions, but as always, there was movement among the ranks.
No. 5 San Diego State (21-1) now holds a 20-game win streak, third-longest in the country behind only Syracuse and Wichita State. The Aztecs won a close road game at Boise State and then cruised to a 15-point home win over Nevada on Saturday.
Michigan State lost to a then unranked Wisconsin team and somehow held steady at No. 9. Meanwhile, Creighton lost on the road to St. John's and fell six places from No. 12 to No. 18. Michigan lost to a ranked Iowa team and fell five spots. Texas lost to an unranked Kansas State team and dropped four spots.
Wisconsin and Ohio State continue to play musical chairs with the Top 25. Two weeks ago they were ranked 14th and 24th, respectively. Last week they both fell off the rankings with Wisconsin losing to Northwestern and Ohio State, while Ohio State lost to Penn State at home. This week they both resurfaced following two wins apiece.
New Mexico (18-4) is still unranked but is now fourth among other teams receiving votes.
