2011 College Basketball AP Poll – Week 3

Week 3 of the 2011-12 men’s college basketball poll has been released. As expected, we didn’t see any changes in the top six positions with the 2011 Maui Invitational getting underway on Monday in Hawaii. The results from that tourney will have an impact on next week’s rankings at a minimum from the Michigan upset over Memphis in round one of the tourney. UNC and Kentucky continue to roll with Mississippi State entering the rankings this week after upsetting Texas A&M and Arizona over the past week.
