After an undefeated 2-0 week, the Pitt Panthers held steady at the number 15 spot in this week's college basketball AP poll. Pitt notched a BCS non-conference win this past weekend over Oklahoma State, but shuffling among only the teams already ahead of them inhibited the Panthers from moving up in the 6th edition of the 2011-12 season AP poll. Fellow Big East and future ACC conference foe Syracuse moved into the number one spot after Kentucky's upset at Indiana on Saturday night. 'Cuse is now 10-0, and is joined by Louisville and Connecticut as Big East schools in the top ten. Marquette is only other Big East school ahead of Pitt, coming in at number 11.
The Panthers have a full week off as the semester winds down, with South Carolina State coming to town this Saturday.
