The following are the SEC teams currently ranked in the AP Top 25 for men’s basketball, according the latest poll that was released on Monday, December 19. Included in this list are three teams ranked in the Top 10 while there are four listed in the Top 15. Check out which teams complete the list and where do they sit.
Six teams are currently ranked in the AP Top 25 rankings for men’s college basketball, with No. 8 Tennessee, No. 9 Alabama and No. 10 Arkansas leading the way. These three programs have been playing very well thus far this season, and although none of them are undefeated, the kind of victories they’ve picked up already this season combined with the instability of the higher ranked teams around them, are some of the reasons for their current positions.
Tennessee is currently 9-2 on the season, Alabama, also has a 9-2 overall record and Arkansas is currently 10-1. Meanwhile, No. 15 Mississippi State is undefeated at the moment with a 11-0 record, and they are followed at No. 19 by Kentucky with a 7-3 record and No. 23 Auburn (9-2).
Purdue (11-0) from the Big Ten conference is the No. 1 team in the AP Top 25 and is followed by No. 2 UConn (12-0) of the Big East, No.3 Houston (11-1) of the American Athletic, No. 4 Kansas (10-1) of Big 12 and No. 5 Arizona (10-1) which represents the PAC 12.
