NCAA Basketball Rankings: Georgia Knocks Mississippi State Down Three Spots In Coaches Poll

The Georgia Bulldogs overtime victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs knocked MSU down three spots in this week's coaches poll.

The Georgia Bulldogs keep taking down some of the top teams in SEC. First it was Arkansas, then it was Mississippi State as the Mark Fox's basketball team have found a groove as of late.

Mississippi State remained in the Top 25, but just barely, as they sit at No. 23 in the latest college basketball rankings. The top two teams, Kentucky and Syracuse, remain unchanged in the polls. The Wildcats are a unanimous No. 1 choice in this week's ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, receiving all 31 first-place votes in the poll released Monday afternoon.

Kentucky and Syracuse are followed by Missouri, Duke and Kansas in the top five. Duke and Kansas both put together strong weeks, making big jumps after being ranked ninth and 10th last week, respectively. Ohio St., North Carolina, Michigan St. and Baylor round out the top ten.

Gonzaga (No. 24) and Notre Dame (25) both bumped into the rankings, with Creighton (previously No. 15) and Harvard 21) dropping out.
