Seton Hall has dropped from No. 19 to No. 21 in the latest AP Top 25 poll while Tuesday's opponent Butler lost 51 votes despite splitting their two games since the last poll. The Hall hadn't remained ranked for consecutive weeks since 2001 and could stay in the top-25 for another week if they win tomorrow night.

Villanova jumps from No. 8 to No. 5 after Arizona, Louisville, and Wisconsin all lost this weekend. St. John's (10 votes) has dropped out of the rankings from No. 24 while Providence (17), Georgetown (7) and Butler (2) represent the Big East with votes. Xavier lost their two votes despite beating Seton Hall and losing at Butler.
