Boiler up! Purdue is No. 1 in AP Top 25 for the first time
Purdue is No. 1 in The Associated Press men’s college basketball poll for the first time. The Boilermakers were a unanimous No. 1 in the poll to move up from No. 2 last week.
Reigning national champion Baylor moved up to No. 2, with Duke, UCLA and Gonzaga rounding out the top five.
Purdue reached No. 2 in consecutive seasons under Gene Keady from 1986-88 and matched its previous high last week.
A win over then-No. 1 Duke sent the Boilermakers to the top spot this week.
