Tigers Basketball Remains 3rd in Both Polls

When you're mentioned among the Elite in College Basketball, there's only so much room at the Top.

For the Memphis Tigers, that means a holding pattern in the latest National Polls..

That means the Tigers stay at Number-3 in the Country in both the A.P. and Coaches polls following Saturday's closer than expected Conference USA win at Rice..

The U of M escaped with an 84-79 victory after leading by double digits most of the game.

Memphis did receive 1 first place vote from the Coaches.

The Tigers are now 21-and-2 on the season.

No Change in the top 5

1. Connecticut (22) 20-1

2. Duke (8) 21-1

3. Memphis (1) 21-2

4. Villanova 17-2

5. Gonzaga 18-3
