In the new Top 25 lists published today, both the AP Poll and Coaches Poll have VCU (21-5, 9-2 in A-10) ranked at No. 24. In case you haven't noticed, the Rams are having another pretty good season. The Associated Press says:
VCU was the only newcomer to the poll this week. The Rams, who had been out of the rankings the last three weeks, moved in at No. 24. The only team to fall out of the rankings was Kentucky, which was No. 25 and dropped out after losing [to] Florida and Tennessee last week.Meanwhile, in both polls the team just outside the list of 25 -- among those also receiving votes -- the first team mentioned is Saint Louis (19-5, 8-2 in A-10), meaning the Billikens are essentially No. 26.
Currently the Rams are a half-game ahead of the Billikens in the A-10. The two teams will face one another in St. Louis on Tuesday night at 9 p.m. (CBS Sports Network).
What's a Billiken, anyway?
