After a much-needed 2-0 week, Tennessee has moved back up to No. 18 in this week’s AP College Basketball Poll. The Volunteers were ranked 24th last week.

Tennessee won a bit of an ugly game at Vanderbilt, and then took down LSU in Knoxville in convincing fashion on Saturday. The LSU win was big for the Vols, improving them to 3-5 against quad one opponents this season. Tennessee also moved to 4-3 in conference play ahead of hosting Florida this week.

Bruce Pearl is back in the No. 1 spot in this week’s poll, with his Auburn Tigers coming off of a big win at home against Kentucky. Auburn is loaded once again, now with firm control of the overall SEC standings and a No. 1 by their name for the first time in school history.

Gonzaga fell to No. 2, with Arizona at No. 3. Baylor and Kansas round out the top five.
