Tennessee falls to No. 6 in latest AP top 25 poll

The Vols are out of the top five.

NCAA Basketball: Auburn at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee tumbled back down to No. 6 in this week’s AP Poll, down four spots from last week’s ranking.

The Volunteers were the latest No. 2 ranked team to suffer a loss, as Florida took care of business in Gainesville on Wednesday. Tennessee avoided disaster on Saturday, holding on to beat Auburn in Knoxville.

The Volunteers are now a projected No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Purdue kept the top spot, despite taking a loss on Saturday to Indiana. Houston, Alabama, Arizona and Texas rounded out the top five.

Auburn fell out of the poll after taking the loss on Saturday, which leaves Alabama and Tennessee as the only remaining ranked teams in the SEC. Auburn, Arkansas, Missouri and Kentucky all received votes in the poll, but didn’t crack the top 25.
