2011 College Basketball Rankings: Mizzou Hold At No. 8 In Coaches Poll

The latest USAToday / Coaches Poll has the Missouri Tigers (11-0) holding strong at No. 8.

Mizzou is finishing up a month in which they did not allow opponents to score any more than 71 points, while themselves not dropping beneath 81. However, they face a strong challenge on Thursday when they square off against the Illinois Fighting Illini (10-1) at home.

The Saint Louis Bilikins (9-1), having last week dropped from the polls, continue to receive votes despite their late November loss to the Loyola Marymount Lions. This week, the Bilikins cobbled together 13 points, a solid 40 points behind the Harvard Crimson (9-1) who sit at No. 25.

Here is a glance at the Top 10 in each major poll:
