College Basketball Rankings: UConn Huskies Rise After Two-Win Week

The UConn men's basketball team bounced back from consecutive losses, winning two consecutive games this week to begin climbing back up the 2012 college basketball rankings.

The UConn men's basketball team bounced back from consecutive losses, winning two consecutive games this week to begin climbing back up the 2012 college basketball rankings.

The Huskies were voted No. 13 in the AP Top 25, four spots better than last week, and No. 11 in the ESPN/USA Today Top 25 Coaches Poll, a five-spot improvement. Syracuse continues to lead both polls, topping the ESPN/USA Today poll unanimously.

Jim Calhoun's squad returned to its winning ways, ousting West Virginia 64-57 on Monday at the XL Center and snapping Notre Dame's 29-game home winning streak on Saturday, 67-53.

Andre Drummond recorded double-doubles in both contests. The freshman center had 20 points and 11 rebounds and followed that effort by notching 10 points and 13 rebounds against Notre Dame.

UConn has two games this week, a Big East home tilt against Cincinnati on Wednesday and a non-conference trip to Tennessee on Saturday.
