The Big East/SEC Challenge was a boon to the Big East teams that won their games in the latest college basketball rankings. With a win over Florida, the Syracuse Orange moved up to No. 3 in both the AP and Coaches' Poll this week. The Louisville Cardinals moved to No. 4 in the Coaches' Poll and No. 5 in the AP Poll. Despite a win over Arkansas, the Connecticut Huskies fell to No. 9 in the AP Poll. The Huskies moved up to No. 9 in the Coaches' Poll.

The Marquette Golden Eagles made a big move from No. 16 up to No. 11 in both polls. The Golden Eagles weren't part of the Big East/SEC Challenge but went on the road and took out Wisconsin. The Pittsburgh Panthers moved up to No. 15 in the AP Poll and No. 14 in the Coaches' Poll with a win over Tennessee. The Georgetown Hoyas used a last-second three-pointer to get a win over Alabama. They followed that game up by pounding the NJIT Highlanders.The Hoyas were rewarded by the polls. Georgetown went from unranked to No. 18 in the AP and No. 21 in the Coaches' Poll.

No Big East teams landed in the received votes category of the AP Poll but the Cincinnati Bearcats received three votes in the Coaches' Poll.
