College Basketball Rankings: Missouri Tigers Rise to No. 8 In AP Poll

The Missouri Tigers (12-0) bump up a spot to No. 8 in the AP Poll following another undefeated week for the Mizzou basketball team. The Tigers, who have been ranked No. 8 in the Coaches Poll for over two weeks now, push above the Connecticut Huskies (10-1) for the first time in 2011.

Elsewhere, the Saint Louis Billikens (10-1, 55 points) continue to march on the comeback trail, chasing the Illinois Fighting Illini (11-2, 70 points) at 28th best. The Billikens have not lost since November 29, but the defeat -- at the hands of the Loyoal Marymount Lions (5-6) continues to haunt their season.
