UB Basketball moves up to #21 in the latest AP Poll

NCAA Basketball: Marist at Buffalo Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

I allowed myself to be convinced that four teams ranked between 14-21 losing, and UB destroying two team during the week would get the Bulls ranked under 20.

Around the water cooler my prediction was 19, but dang it, aparently UB will have to beat teams down even more if they want to really move up.

On one side the Bulls were leapfrogged by Purdue, Ohio State, Texas Tech, and Texas.

On the other teams like Florida State, who were ranked 14th and took a loss, only fell one spot.

The good new is that things are tight. UB is nearly 100 points ahead of #22 Wisconsin and they are just about 90 behind #18 Oregon.

Keep winning and you move up, maybe slowly, but you do move up...
