Purdue jumps into top three on the heels of Separation Week

It was something of a Separation Week at the top of the poll. While Syracuse (against Louisville) and Villanova (against Connecticut) suffered inexcusable losses on their home floors, Kansas (at Texas A&M) and Kentucky (at Mississippi State) reasserted themselves as Nos. 1 and 2 by pulling out tough road wins in a pair of games that at times had all the makings of an upset. Also, Purdue jumps up into the top three after a statement win in Columbus.
