Week 6 AP Top 25/Coaches Poll; Cincinnati Rises in Coaches Poll

Following a loss in the Crosstown Shootout, Cincinnati remains in the Top 25 Polls, actually jumping up two spots in the Coaches Poll.

Here are the USA Today Coaches Poll and the AP Top 25 for Week 6 in College Basketball. Michigan State remains on top in both polls with Kansas, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Iowa State filling out the top five, albeit in different orders.

Following their loss on the road against Xavier, Cincinnati remains in both polls, hardly moving, if at all. In the AP Top 25, the Bearcats remain 23rd at 8-2 with losses to Butler and the Musketeers. Cincinnati is ranked No. 20 in the Coaches Poll, actually jumping up two spots from last week.

The Bearcats were able to remain largely unfazed in the polls, in part because of how highly regarded Xavier is right now with the Musketeers jumping up to No. 10 in both polls. Butler is also ranked with the Bulldogs No. 17 in the AP Poll and No. 18 in the Coaches Poll. Cincinnati did defeat George Washington earlier this season and right now are the Colonials only loss on the season. GW ranks No. 21 in the AP Poll and No. 22 in the Coaches Poll.

Cincinnati is looking to find their offensive stride tomorrow against Norfolk State, but a huge matchup against Iowa State looms on December 22. The Cyclones are ranked No. 5 in the AP Top 25 and No. 2 in the Coaches Poll.
