Despite a resounding 91-62 win over New Mexico on Saturday, the University of Nevada men’s basketball team fell from No. 6 to No. 7 in the latest Associated Press poll released on Monday.

Despite a 81-71 loss at home to No. 2 Duke, Virginia was still No. 4 in the AP poll. Two teams who moved ahead of Nevada in the AP poll were Kentucky (No. 5) and Michigan (No. 6). Tennessee remained No. 1 and Gonzaga was No. 3 in the poll.

Nevada (23-1) received even less respect when it received just a No. 4 seed in the first seedings released by the NCAA Division I Selection Committee over the weekend. Two teams seeded higher than Nevada, receiving a No. 3 seed, were Marquette and Houston.

Nevada did remain No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. The Wolf Pack will play at 7 p.m. Saturday at Wyoming on ESPNU.
