Tennessee down to No. 11 in AP Poll

The latest top 25.

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

Good news, bad news — Tennessee took down No. 1 Alabama, then turned around and lost to Kentucky on the road on Saturday. The Volunteers, who are still dealing with injuries to Josiah-Jordan James and Julian Phillips, can’t seem to find a groove right now.

After the rollercoaster week, Tennessee moves from No. 10 to No. 11 in this week’s AP poll.

Houston climbed back to No. 1, while Alabama slid to No. 2 following their first loss in SEC play. Kansas, UCLA and Purdue round out the top five. Texas A&M, Tennessee’s mid-week opponent this week, enters the poll at No. 25. The Aggies and Volunteers are set for a Tuesday night tip-off at 7 p.m. ET in College Station.

Tennessee remains a near-consensus projected No. 3 seed, now with just two weeks remaining in the regular season.
