College Basketball Rankings: Saint Louis Receives Votes In AP Poll

The Saint Louis Billikens, who cruised to an easy victory over the Alabama State Hornets this past Saturday, received the fourth most votes of teams outside the Top 25 in this week's AP Poll, effectively naming them the nation's 29th best team. The Billikens have been sniffing around the outside of the Top 25 ever since they dropped out following a loss to the Loyola Marymount Lions in late November.

Saint Louis is slated for a single game this week, vs. the Arkansas State Red Wolves, and for now, the Billikens' non-conference victories over teams like the Washington Huskies and Villanova Wildcats speak for themselves. If Saint Louis continues to win out— and they're likely to be favored in many of their remaining games this season— they should easily be in the AP Top 25 when they take on the Xavier Musketeers in mid-January.

Here is the bottom of the AP Top 25, including teams fighting with Saint Louis for poll position:
