AP Poll 2/9: Xavier unranked

New, comments

The Musketeers got a limited amount of attention again this week, which is what happens when you lose to Creighton.

The AP poll is out again - they do this every week - and Xavier is once again unranked. A note about "receiving votes" status: the number next to a team's name is actually how many points they got, not how many votes they received. A #1 ranking in a given ballot is worth 25 points, #2 is worth 24, and so on until you get to a #25 ranking, which is worth 1 point. If your team has a 2 next to them, it could mean they received 2 #25 votes or - as is the case with Xavier this week - one #24 vote (from Soren Petro of sports radio 810 WHB). If someone tells you Xavier "received two votes" this week, that person doesn't know how the polls work and it's probably safe to ignore her analysis.
