For the second straight week, Texas has been ranked 25th in the Associated Press’ basketball poll.

The Longhorns were leapfrogged in the updated poll by a Minnesota team that was unranked last week. Minnesota (11-1) earned 50 points this week. South Dakota (12-2) received 40 points and was the first team to miss the AP’s cut.
