Colorado Buffaloes ranked 20th in AP Poll

The Buffs move up from 23rd.

NCAA Basketball: Washington State at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Buffaloes have moved up in the latest AP Poll. They are now ranked #20 after two double-digits wins over Washington State and Washington.

This past week wasn’t as chaotic as most of this season has been, but there was some movement in the polls as six Top 25 lost during the week. The Buffs jumped three spots as #18 Texas Tech, #20 Memphis and #22 Arizona all lost.

Of Colorado’s non-conference opponents, Kansas and Dayton are sitting pretty at #3 and #7, respectively. Dayton still hasn’t lost since D’Shawn Schwartz’s buzzer-beater, and their one other loss was in overtime to Kansas in Maui.

Arizona’s loss to Arizona State dropped them from the Top 25. They’re still one of the 25 best teams, but they have won just 4 of their last 10 games. The Wildcats falling means that the only Pac-12 in rankings are #11 Oregon and #20 Colorado. For what it’s worth, Arizona and USC are receiving votes and are unofficially #27 and #34, respectively.

The full AP Top 25 goes as follows:

  1. Baylor Bears
  2. Gonzaga Bulldogs
  3. Kansas Jayhawks
  4. San Diego State Aztecs
  5. Florida State Seminoles
  6. Louisville Cardinals
  7. Dayton Flyers
  8. Villanova Wildcats
  9. Duke Blue Devils
  10. Seton Hall Pirates
  11. Oregon Ducks
  12. West Virginia Mountaineers
  13. Kentucky Wildcats
  14. Michigan State Spartans
  15. Maryland Terrapins
  16. Butler Bulldogs
  17. Auburn Tigers
  18. Iowa Hawkeyes
  19. Illinois Fighting Illini
  20. Colorado Buffaloes
  21. Houston Cougars
