Fresh off a 3 win week, the 6-0 Cincinnati Bearcats find themselves ranked 17 and 16 in the new college basketball polls. It's their highest ranking in either poll since Bob Huggins was around.  In other honors, Sean Kilpatrick was named the Big East Player of the Week.  First of many this year, we can only hope. Congrats to Killa, congrats to the team. This is a wonderful time to be a Cincinnati Bearcat.    AP Top 25 RK TEAM RECORD PTS 1 Indiana (47) 6-0 1,606 2 Duke (18) 6-0 1,554 3 Michigan 5-0 1,421 4 Ohio State 4-0 1,416 5 Louisville 5-1 1,347 6 Syracuse 4-0 1,323 7 Florida 5-0 1,227 8 Kentucky 4-1 1,180 9 Arizona 3-0 1,076 10 Kansas 4-1 937 11 Creighton 6-0 926 12 Gonzaga 6-0 854 13 Michigan State 5-1 818 14 North Carolina 5-1 718 15 Oklahoma State 5-0 668 16 Missouri 5-1 665 17 Cincinnati 6-0 571 18 North Carolina State 4-1 553 19 Colorado 5-0 478 20 Georgetown 4-1 257 21 Minnesota 6-1 197 22 Illinois 7-0 185 23 San Diego State 4-1 182 24 UNLV 3-1 175 25 New Mexico 6-0 141 Others receiving votes: Alabama 108, Wichita State 99, Connecticut 93, UCLA 85, Pittsburgh 55, Oregon 44, Notre Dame 42, Memphis 23, Butler 20, Wisconsin 16, California 12, Florida State 10, Saint Joseph's 9, Ohio 8, Marquette 7, Murray State 5, Temple 5, Baylor 4, Tennessee 3, Virginia Commonwealth 1, Colorado State 1 Dropped from rankings: UCLA 11, Memphis 19, Connecticut 21, Baylor 24 Complete Rankings » USA Today Coaches Poll RK TEAM RECORD PTS 1 Indiana (27) 6-0 769 2 Duke (4) 6-0 723 3 Michigan 5-0 691 4 Ohio State 4-0 689 5 Syracuse 4-0 630 6 Louisville 5-1 615 7 Florida 5-0 573 8 Kentucky 4-1 557 9 Arizona 3-0 520 10 Kansas 4-1 484 11 Creighton 6-0 463 12 Gonzaga 6-0 440 13 North Carolina 5-1 355 14 Michigan State 5-1 320 15 Missouri 5-1 319 16 Cincinnati 6-0 295 17 Oklahoma State 5-0 261 18 North Carolina State 4-1 240 19 Colorado 5-0 172 20 UNLV 3-1 144 21 San Diego State 4-1 139 22 Illinois 7-0 103 23 New Mexico 6-0 68 24 UCLA 4-2 62 25 Georgetown 4-1 56   Others receiving votes: Minnesota 48, Pittsburgh 41, Connecticut 38, Alabama 38, Notre Dame 36, Florida State 26, Wisconsin 24, Wichita State 16, Memphis 16, California 14, Murray State 13, Kansas State 12, Oregon 12, Saint Joseph's 10, Ohio 10, Saint Mary's 8, Tennessee 5, Butler 5, Marquette 4, Baylor 3, Maryland 2, Virginia Commonwealth 2, Texas 1, Colorado State 1, Davidson 1, Ole Miss 1 Dropped from rankings: Memphis 17, Baylor 21, Connecticut 23, Wisconsin 24
