NCAA College Basketball Rankings, Week 4: Big East Still Has Three In Top 10

The look is a bit different, but the results are the same for the Big East Conference.

Just like last week, three teams have been voted into the Top 10 in each of the college basketball polls, released Monday.

Pittsburgh (No. 3 in both the AP and USA Today-ESPN polls), Syracuse (No. 8/7) and Connecticut (No. 7/9) earned the honors.

Villanova (5-1), which was ranked No. 7 in both polls, dropped to No. 12 because of a loss to No. 13/17 Tennessee, 78-68, on Friday.

The Huskies (5-0), who beat No. 6 Michigan State (5-1) and No. 10/11 Kentucky (4-1) in the EA Sports Maui Invitation last week, jumped from being an honorable mention in the AP poll to a Top 10-team in both.

Pittsburgh (7-0), last week ranked No. 5, and Syracuse (6-0), last week No. 8/9, moved up a few rungs.

Rounding out the Top 25 for the Big East were No. 16/14 Georgetown (5-0) and Notre Dame (7-0), which is No. 25 in the AP poll.

For the fourth straight week, Duke (6-0) remains No. 1 in both polls. Also in both rankings, Ohio State (5-0) replaced Michigan State, which slipped to No. 6, for the second spot.
