MIAMI, FL (Sporting Alert, December 5) —— The following are the AP Top 25 scores from the college basketball games that were played this past week. Several of the top teams suffered mixed results over the last couple of games, while there were others taking care of business ahead to next AP Top 25 rankings which comes out today (5).

It was a disappointing week for No. 18 North Carolina after the Tar Heels suffered back to back defeat last week. The pre-season No. 1 ranked team has already lost four times from nine played games this week after losing 77-65 to No. 10 Indiana and then going down to Virginia Tech, 80-72.

These successive defeats will more than likely see North Carolina dropping out of the AP Top 25 rankings altogether this week. Read More: Caleb Grill, Iowa State upset No. 1 North Carolina, 70-63 at Phil Knight Invitational
