Creighton, Gonzaga and Memphis Still In Latest AP Rankings

Ethan Miller

Creighton, Gonzaga and Memphis all held onto spots in the AP Top 25, with the Bluejays and the Bulldogs both gaining spots in the latest ranking. Never let it be said that the mid-majors don't have some influence in this poll. The only team to lose its spot happened because of a shocker on opening night.

So this could seem a little superfluous, having a new set of AP rankings just three days into the college basketball season. This isn't football where 8 percent of the games are complete after a single week of action.

We have barely scratched the surface in terms of the end result for college basketball.

But I guess having a new poll allows the media to feel like they can correct some of the mistakes they made in their analysis. Although that would require them ranking Connecticut ahead of Michigan State this time around, something that they failed to do in the update.

As for the mid-major squads, Creighton, Gonzaga and Memphis continue to hold onto their spots in the poll. No other mid-major cracked the Top 25.

That said the mid-major influence on the rankings was certainly felt. The only team left out of the rankings this week was Florida State, who dropped a shocker to South Alabama on opening night.
