College Basketball Rankings: Georgetown At No. 18 In AP Top 25 Poll

The Hoyas' upset of No. 12 Alabama on Thursday helped them climb into the AP Top 25 for the first time this season.

The Georgetown Hoyas (7-1) ascended to No. 18 in the Associated Press' Top 25 men's basketball poll, they learned Monday, following a week in which they upset the No. 12 Alabama Crimson Tide, 57-55, on the road in Tuscaloosa; Hollis Thompson's three-pointer with less than two seconds to play sealed victory for the visitors. It's the first appearance in the Top 25 for Georgetown in 2011/12, having last appeared there at No. 22 on Mar. 7.

Georgetown's lone loss to date this season came against the Kansas Jayhawks, 67-63, in the Maui Invitational Tournament. Kansas was ranked No. 12 at the time and stands at No. 13 in Monday's poll.

The Kentucky Wildcats (8-0) and Ohio St. Buckeyes (8-0) retained their spots at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. The No. 3 Syracuse Orange, No. 4 North Carolina Tar Heels, No. 5 Louisville Cardinals, and No. 6 Baylor Bears each moved up one spot as the Duke Blue Devils dropped from No. 3 to No. 7. The Xavier Musketeers, Connecticut Huskies, and Missouri Tigers round out the Top 10. Please visit SB Nation's NCAA basketball hub for complete 2012 NCAA basketball rankings.
