Feb. 11--The University at Buffalo moved down two spots to No. 25 in the Associated Press men's basketball rankings released Monday.
UB (20-3) had been ranked No. 23 and had 153 points a week ago.
This week, the Bulls have 170 points and are 26 behind No. 24 Maryland. Cincinnati, the first team in others receiving votes, has 76 points so UB was safely in the rankings.
The Bulls are in the rankings for the 14th consecutive week, tying the 1969-70 St. Bonaventure team for most weeks ranked in a season by a Big Four program.
UB is coming off a 90-76 home win Saturday against Central Michigan and travels to Kent State on Tuesday night.
In the USA Today Coaches poll, the Bulls have moved up one spot to No. 24. UB has 86 points, which is 88 points less than No. 23 Wisconsin. UB is ahead of No. 25 Maryland by 21 points.
The Bulls are No. 22 in the NCAA NET rankings through Sunday's game. That is the analytics-based formula that the Selection Committee will use.
