On Monday, the Buffaloes moved up one spot in the Associated Press Top 25, while moving into the USA Today Coaches' poll.

The Buffs moved up to No. 20 in the AP poll, essentially swapping places with Gonzaga, which dropped from 20 to 21.

CU gained attention from the coaches this week, moving to No. 24 in that poll. The Buffs were 27th a week ago. This is just the fourth time the Buffs have ever been ranked in the coaches' poll.

This is also just the second week that CU has ever been ranked in both polls. They were 19th in both polls on Nov. 26, 2012.

Also of note, the Colorado women's team remained No. 11 in the Associated Press poll for the third consecutive week. There was no change in the top 11 spots in the poll from last week.

The women's coaches poll will be released on Tuesday. Linda Lappe's squad was No. 15 in that poll last week.
