AP College Basketball Top 25 Poll Week 13: Wichita State To No. 4, UMass Drops to No. 21

Mike Brennan and the American Eagles got a single vote in this week's AP Top 25 poll - Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Wichita State moved up again this week, to No. 4 in the country. And while UMass and Saint Louis are still ranked, the more interesting thing might be what's happening in the Others Receiving Votes category.

Arizona cemented its hold on the No. 1 spot in the country by moving to 20-0 and extending its winning streak to 20 games for the first time in school history. Syracuse continued to grab two of the 65 potential first place votes.

Wichita State moved up to No. 4 in the country this week, winning both its games, and now extending its undefeated run to 21 games. The Shockers are home against Loyola and Evansville this week.

Massachusetts fell from No. 13 to No. 21 after losing to Richmond. It was a loss that seemed to be coming soon; and the Spiders took advantage (and crawled into our Mid-Major Madness Power 15 as a result).

Saint Louis stayed steady at No. 19 this week with a lone win over Duquesne.

The mid-major ranks saw a few new teams gain votes in this week. Joining stalwarts Gonzaga, Harvard and George Washington, were Green Bay, Southern Mississippi, Louisiana Tech, and American. The last three each got a single vote. Green Bay debuted with five votes.
