The West Virginia University men’s basketball team is among the teams receiving votes just outside the top 25 in this week’s Associated Press poll. 

WVU (7-0) is coming off a week which saw the Mountaineers beat Northern Iowa and Wichita State to win the Cancun Challenge in Mexico then returned home to hold off a pesky Rhode Island team on Sunday in the Coliseum.

West Virginia’s next game is this weekend, when the Mountaineers play St. John’s at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

WVU received a total of  28 points in this week’s poll and was ranked as high as No. 20 by one voter and appeared on eight ballots this week — including mine which you can view here.
