UConn No. 21 in AP poll

John F. Silver

A scare last night against Quinnipiac did little to sway voters in the AP Top 25 men’s basketball poll.

The Huskies moved up two spots to No. 21 in the nation on the heels of a 3-0 week including Sunday’s 89-83 double overtime thriller against Quinnipiac last night. The Huskies will play New Mexico tonight in the Paradise Jam final in the Virgin Islands beginning at 10 p.m.

Here’s this week’s AP Poll:
