UH men’s basketball climbs back to No. 5 in AP Poll
The UH men’s basketball team continues to climb the rankings of the AP poll after extending its winning streak to eight this past week.
UH is now No. 5 in the AP poll. The team garnered 1,348 points from voters, which is a 67-point increase from last week’s totals.
The Cougars were No. 6 in last Monday’s AP poll.
The Cougars (15-1, 10-1 American Athletic Conference) defeated the Tulane Green Wave on Thursday and then defeated the SMU Mustangs in a rout on Sunday at the Fertitta Center. Both wins were by double-digit margins.
After Sunday’s round of games, UH remains at No. 4 in the NCAA’s NET rankings.
The Cougars are scheduled to play one game this week before the next polls, which will be on the road against East Carolina on Wednesday night.
