NCAA Basketball Rankings: George Mason Enters Top 25, Georgetown Falls To 17 In ESPN/USA Today Top 25 Poll

George Mason is on the longest winning streak in the nation (16 games and counting) and as a result they are starting to gain some serious national attention in the latest NCAA Rankings. The voters have finally put the Patriots in the ESPN USA/Today Top 25 poll, as they come in at No. 25 in this week's rankings.

The other ranked team in the area, Georgetown, took a bit of a tumble this week after losing two games and starting point guard Chris Wright to a broken hand. They are now ranked 17th in the ESPN USA/Today Poll, which is pretty remarkable considering that they are just 10-7 in conference.
