Nevada Men's Basketball #7 in AP, USA Today Coaches Poll


The University of Nevada men’s basketball team is ranked seventh in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches poll released Monday. The 10-0 Wolf Pack were sixth in both polls last week.

The Pack just played six consecutive games away from home and posted a perfect 6-0 record. 

Meanwhile, Kansas has returned to No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 following Gonzaga's loss to Tennessee.

The Jayhawks received 57 first-place votes from a 65-person media panel on Monday despite struggling to get past New Mexico State.

No. 2 Duke received four first-places votes, with No. 3 Tennessee, No. 4 Gonzaga, No. 5 Michigan and No. 6 Michigan getting one each.

Kansas (8-0) was preseason No. 1, but dropped a spot after Duke rolled over Kentucky to open the college basketball season.

Gonzaga, the top-ranked team after beating the Blue Devils at the Maui Invitational, fell back after a 76-73 loss to the Vols Sunday in Phoenix.

No. 7 Nevada, Auburn, Michigan State and Florida State round out the top 10.

Nevada beat Grand Canyon on Sunday, 74-66. 

The Wolf Pack got off to a shaky start against the Sun Devils on Friday in Los Angeles, falling into an 11-point hole before rallying in the second half for a 72-66 win.

Next up for the Pack is South Dakota State at Lawlor Events Center. The game will air on ESPN3 starting at 6 p.m. this Saturday. You can also buy tickets for the game here.
