West Virginia Continues to Receive Votes in the Latest Coaches Poll

West Virginia moves a little closer to the top 25 while three Big 12 teams sit inside the top 10 and Iowa State slides into the rankings

On Monday, the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll and the Associated Press released their week four top 25's. The West Virginia Mountaineers are on the outside looking in but moved up two spots to No. 39 despite receiving two fewer votes from last week. West Virginia survived against Eastern Kentucky Friday night 80-77.

The Baylor Bears take over as the highest-ranked Big 12 Conference at four in both polls following a 75-58 win over the Michigan State Spartans to win the Battle for Atlantis Championship. Kansas slides to eighth in the AP Poll and seventh in the Coaches Poll after a buzzer-beating loss to Dayton on Friday while Texas moves up a spot to seventh in the AP and remains at No. 8 following a 68-44 win over California Baptist. And Iowa State defeated ninth-ranked Memphis and 25th Xavier at the NIT Season Tip-off to jump to No. 19 in the AP and 23rd in the Coaches Poll.
