For the first time this season, the UConn men are out of the No. 2 spot in the Associated Press poll. The Huskies dropped to No. 5 after suffering their first loss of the season when they lost 74-63 to Georgetown.
UConn completed the week by blowing out Rutgers 80-49.
The Big East has a record nine teams in the poll, including the No. 1 team in the country, Pittsburgh. The 14-0 Panthers moved into the top spot taking 70 of 72 votes. No. 3 North Carolina received the other two votes.
Pitt is the first Big East team to hold the No. 1 spot in the poll since UConn was atop on March 6, 2006.
