Villanova has dropped a spot to #8 in the AP Poll by the writers and has held its #7 ranking in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll in the rankings for the 12th week.
The ratings come on the heels of a week that saw the Wildcats lose on a last-minute bucket to then#8 UConn (on less than two days rest), and an impressive win against Syracuse in front of the second largest crowd in Carrier Dome history.
7 Big East teams in total are in the AP Top 25.
- Pitt, #2
- Connecticut, #5
- Syracuse, #9
- Notre Dame, #15
- Georgetown, #21
- Lousiville, #23
