Since that time, there has been a little bit of a shakeup in the rankings, but not much. With that said, let's just dive into things.
6. Penn (6-11; 5)
Since the last set of rankings two weeks ago, Penn has gone 2-2, including a win over Big 5 rival Saint Joseph's. Unfortunately for the Quakers, Drexel has strung together a few wins and has jumped them in these rankings.
Penn may've been able to hold off the surging Dragons for another week in the rankings if they hadn't lost by 25 to Harvard Saturday. Sorry Penn fans. Better luck next week.
5. Drexel (7-14; 6)
It appears conference play may be just the medicine Bruiser Flint's squad has needed all along. Drexel has been on an upward trend since the last rankings, going 3-1 in that time.
The Dragons were crushed by a good Hofstra squad last week, but followed that up with three straight wins, including triumphs over solid squads in Northeastern and UNCW.
On the strength of those three straight wins, the Dragons jump Penn and have officially moved out of the bottom spot of the rankings for the first time in recent memory.
4. Saint Joseph's (9-11; 4)
The Hawks have gone 2-2 since the last set of rankings, sandwiching losses to Big 5 rivals Penn and La Salle between wins over a decent UMass squad and a very good Davidson team.
While the two losses were far from pretty, Saint Joseph's win over Davidson on Saturday was pretty impressive. The Hawks kicked off the second half on a 20-3 run to turn a 13 point deficit into a four point lead before eventually pulling off the win over the Wildcats.
Saint Joseph's will face two A-10 bottom feeders this coming week, which should result in wins for the Hawks. However, this squad has been up and down all season, so nothing is a lock.
3. La Salle (12-9; 3)
La Salle is 2-1 since the last set of rankings, having fallen to a very good Rhode Island team before picking up wins over Saint Joseph's and St. Bonaventure's.
The Explorers will face a tough Richmond team this week before visiting a solid UMass squad on Sunday. These games should serve as a good measuring stick for La Salle, and could help the Explorers build some momentum heading into the home stretch of the season.
2. Temple (15-7; 2)
Will Cummings is back, and with him so is Temple's success. The Owls have rattled off three straight wins since their leader returned, all by margin of 18 points or more.
Cummings appears fine after suffering a lower left leg injury a few weeks back. It became evident in his short absence that he was the driving force behind Temple's success. With him back in the lineup, the Owls look poised to make some noise down the home stretch of the season.
1. Villanova (19-2; 1)
After suffering just their second loss of the season two weeks ago, the Wildcats are back on track, recording wins over Creighton and DePaul.
Villanova has a few tough games remaining on the schedule, but should be just fine and head into the tournament with a very high seed.
