After a week where the Hoyas split games, where do they land in the Rankings of both polls.

After a week where Georgetown looked pretty bad in a loss to Seton Hall, the voters of the both polls punished the Georgetown Hoyas by dropping them out of the top 10 in both the AP and the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' polls.

The Coaches' were more harsh dropping the Hoyas four spots from No. 8 to No. 12, the AP pollsters dropped Georgetown from No. 9 to No. 11. While the Hoyas did recover on Saturday and won against Villanova, the 18-point loss to the Seton Hall Pirates stayed in the minds of the pollsters. Georgetown has an opportunity to help their rankings out as they play Notre Dame Monday night and Marquette on Saturday.

In other news in the polls, Kentucky and Syracuse remained at No. 1 and No. 2. With Missouri's loss to Kansas on Saturday, the Jayhawks went up one spot to No. 4 in the coaches poll and Duke went to No. 3. Michigan State joins the back end of the Top Five.
