Alabama Basketball Remains Unranked in Latest AP Top 25, Coaches Polls

In the latest edition of the AP poll, only four SEC programs are ranked in the top 25 teams in college basketball.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Despite going 2-0 last week against then-No. 13 LSU and Missouri last week, Alabama basketball remained unranked in the Week 12 edition of both the AP Top 25 and Ferris Mowers Coaches polls.

The Crimson Tide has now not been ranked in back-to-back weeks. While Alabama accomplished back-to-back wins against the two Tigers teams, its three-consecutive losses in the weeks prior are still having a say in this week's AP poll.

In the AP Top 25, in-state rival Auburn is the new No. 1 team in the country, which marks the first time in program history. In total, the Tigers received 1,504 points and 45 first-place votes to take first place.

Around the rest of the Southeastern Conference, Kentucky remained No. 12 this week despite losing on the road at Auburn. LSU dropped from No. 13 down to No. 19, while Tennessee rose up to No. 18 this week.

It should also be noted that Davidson — the team that defeated Alabama 79-78 in the C.M. Newton Classic and currently holds the longest winning streak in college basketball at 15 games — is also now ranked No. 25.

Here are the latest versions of the AP Top 25 and Ferris Mowers Coaches polls:
