College Basketball Rankings, Feb. 6: Harvard Rises, UConn Remains Outside Top 25

For the second straight week, Harvard stands by itself as New England's lone representative in the college basketball rankings. And this week, the Crimson are ranked in both major polls.

Harvard rose two spots to No. 21 in the AP Top 25 and made a reappearance in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll at No. 25.

The Crimson won both their games this week to extend their winning streak to eight games, moving to 6-0 in the Ivy League after ousting Cornell 71-60 on Friday and edging Columbia 57-52 on Saturday.

UConn won its first game after coach Jim Calhoun announced a medical leave of absence from the team, snapping a four-game winning streak 69-46 against Seton Hall. Nonetheless, the Huskies remained on the outside of the polls looking in for the second straight week.
