UConn drops out of polls

|

This isn’t a shocker, but UConn fell out of the national rankings following last Monday’s loss to New Mexico in the Paradise Jam championship.

The Lobos, who remain unbeaten, cracked the poll at No. 25. Fun note: UCLA, which was humiliated at home versus Cal-Poly late Sunday night, dropped out of the AP top 25, but still was voted No. 24 in the coaches’ poll. I guess a few coaches had already sent their ballot when the Bruins blew an 18-point second half lead.

UConn (5-1) is third in the “also receiving votes” category of both polls. Here’s the AP:

    I guess that’s just one more reason why no one in Fairfield County could care less about UCONN sports.
