·1 min read

The men’s college basketball schedule during Christmas week was significantly limited, and that could again be the case in the upcoming week with numerous programs on pause due to COVID protocols. But a few results of note produced changes in the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll.

The top three teams remain the same as Baylor is still the unanimous choice at No. 1. Duke follows at No. 2 with Purdue holding at No. 3. Gonzaga is now alone at No. 4 with UCLA rounding out the top five.
