OSU moves up in men's basketball rankings

A wild week in college hoops, that saw 14 ranked teams lose at least one game, has led to a significant shake-up in Monday's rankings.

And when the dust settled, Oklahoma State, currently on a five game win streak, found itself at No. 17 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the coaches poll. The Cowboys were No. 22 and No. 24, respectively, last week.

Kansas and Kansas State remained the only other ranked Big 12 teams, with the Wildcats moving up to No. 10 in the AP and No. 11 in the coaches, while KU, coming off a rough two-loss week (to TCU and Oklahoma) fell to No. 14 in the AP and No. 13 in the coaches.

The two in-state rivals play Monday night in Lawrence.

OU received one vote in each poll, the first time they've received consideration in both this season.
