College Basketball Rankings: Harvard Dropped From Top 25

Harvard and UConn are both unranked, leaving New England with no representatives in the college basketball top 25.

One Ivy League loss left New England all out of top 25 teams in the latest college basketball rankings.

Harvard dropped from No. 21 to unranked in the ESPN Today/USA Today Coaches Poll after falling at Princeton on Saturday. The 71-62 loss, which came despite 16 points and 12 rebounds from Keith Wright, ended Harvard's perfect 7-0 mark in Ivy League play.

The Connecticut Huskies likewise find themselves unranked. The Huskies have been in free fall lately; coach Jim Calhoun took an indefinite medical leave of absence and his team has lost six of its last seven. The two most recent defeats, at Louisville and Syracuse, came by a combined 39 points. UConn dropped an 85-67 decision to Syracuse on Saturday after a 63-61 game devolved into a rout.

UConn returns to the court Wednesday against DePaul. Harvard resumes play Friday against Brown.
