Power 12 College Basketball Rankings, Week 4


Another week of the 2015-16 season is in the books, which means it’s time to roll out the next installment of the Power 12 College Basketball Rankings.

Once again, the Maryland Terrapins sit atop the rankings. The Terps have an unmatched starting rotation and a perfect, 6-0 record.

Also just like last week, Kentucky, Michigan State and Kansas check in at No. 2, 3 and 4, respectively.

The biggest mover of the week is Oklahoma. The Sooners jumped from outside the rankings all the way up to No. 5.

The biggest loser of the week is Indiana. The Hoosiers swapped spots with the Sooners, falling from No. 5 out of the rankings.

Miami and Gonzaga also fell from the rankings, while Iowa State and Syracuse moved into the Power 12.
