The Missouri Tigers continue to surge up the College Basketball Rankings while the Saint Louis Billikens barely hang onto their last few votes.

The Missouri Tigers (13-0) have continued their rise through the NCAA College Basketball Rankings, pushing themselves to No. 6 and No. 7 in the Coaches and AP Polls, respectively:

Rank Coaches Poll AP Poll
1 Syracuse Syracuse
2 Kentucky Kentucky
3 Duke North Carolina
4 North Carolina Baylor
5 Baylor Duke
6 Missouri Ohio State
7 Ohio State Missouri
8 Connecticut Connecticut
9 Georgetown Georgetown
10 Louisville Michigan St.

Missouri is one of the last four remaining undefeated teams in the Top 25 of both polls. The Tigers begins the 2012 side of their season on Tuesday against the Oklahoma Sooners (10-2) as they kick off the Big 12 portion of their schedule.

Meanwhile, the Saint Louis Billikens (12-2) continue receive votes despite their two losses. In the Coaches Poll (3) and the AP Poll (6), the Billikens continue to receive courtesy votes, but with the season only half over, Saint Louis still has a chance to impress and rise up the standings.
