Lobos Crack AP, USA Today Coaches Top 25 Polls (view polls)

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The New Mexico Lobos, thanks to a 6-0 start to the season and a Paradise Jam tournament championship win over previously ranked Connecticut last week, have broken into both major Top 25 polls – the Associated Press Top 25 and the USA TOday coaches poll.

The Lobos were ranked No. 23 in the latest coaches poll released Monday morning and No. 25 in the AP poll.

In the coaches poll, UNM was ahead of No. 24 UCLA and No. 25 Georgetown. Fellow Mountain West schools UNLV (No. 20) and San Diego State (No. 21), both of whom already have losses, are ranked ahead of UNM.

In the AP poll, San Diego State was No. 23 while UNLV checked in at No. 24. Colorado State received votes in both polls but did not crack the Top 25.

Previously ranked teams UConn, Memphis, Wisconsin and Baylor all dropped out of this week’s polls, making way for UNM, Georgetown and Illinois in both polls while Colorado broke into the coaches poll for the first time and Minnesota into the AP poll.
