The West Virginia University men’s basketball team is ranked No. 11 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 poll, released Monday.

The Mountaineers (3-0) jump four spots this week after taking all three of their games en route to a Crossover Classic tournament championship last week in South Dakota, with wins against South Dakota State, VCU and Western Kentucky.

West Virginia has a busy week of marquee matchups this week with the Mountaineers scheduled to play against No. 1 Gonzaga at the Jimmy V Classic on Wednesday in Indianapolis before another a trip to take on old rival Georgetown on the road in this season’s Big East-Big 12 Challenge.
