MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — After a road loss to Oklahoma, WVU men’s basketball checks in at No. 14 in the latest AP Top 25

The Mountaineers dropped five spots this week, down from No. 9. Their highest ranking this season is No. 7. 

This week’s poll provided some shuffling for several Big 12 teams. While Baylor stays steady at No. 2, Texas moved to No. 4 after its lopsided upset of Kansas. Subsequently, the Jayhawks dropped from No. 3 to No. 6 following one of the worst home losses in KU history.

Like WVU, Texas Tech also fell five spots to No. 18. The Red Raiders lost to Oklahoma State in overtime Saturday, their second Big 12 loss in three games. 

Gonzaga is once again the top-ranked squad in the poll

West Virginia concludes a two-game road trip tonight against Oklahoma State, then it returns home Saturday to host No. 4 Texas.
