RENO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s basketball team has climbed back into The Associated Press Top 25.
The Wolf Pack are ranked No. 23 in the AP poll released on Monday. They beat Mountain West Conference foe Boise State 74-68 in Reno on Saturday to improve to 18-3 on the season, 7-0 in the league.
Nevada received 190 total points in the poll, one more than No. 24 Rhode Island, a team it beat earlier this year. Tennessee is ranked 22nd with 260 points.
As of last week, the Wolf Pack’s RPI rating was the 17th best in the country. Their three losses have come at the hands of Texas Tech, which is ranked 14th in this week’s poll, TCU and San Francisco.
They travel to Wyoming Wednesday night and play their next game at home against Fresno State on Jan. 31.
