Vermont has won nine straight games and makes its way into the Other Top 25 ranking for the first time this year. The Catamounts, who have not lost since Dec. 7, came in tied for 15th in the ranking.

They are a prefect 7-0 in America East play and won at Stony Brook 80-67 on Wednesday to create a two-game lead in the conference standings. Vermont also defeated Maine at home this week.

South Dakota State made its return to the ranking and was No. 9. The Jackrabbits are 19-4 overall and are undefeated at 10-0 in the Summit League. Their most recent loss came in the non-conference finale against Missouri State on Dec. 15.

There were two other newcomers in the ranking: Toledo (T-23rd) and UNC Wilmington (25th).
