ESPN.com Power Rankings: Jan. 12
SMU can't play in the postseason. The Mustangs are banned from their conference tournament and the NCAA tournament. So it's OK to ignore them, right?
Not when they are 15-0. Not when they take care of Cincinnati to keep that record unblemished. Not when you look at the schedule and wonder when (or if) that loss will come.
The Mustangs moved up in the rankings. And they aren't done yet, even if their season will be done earlier than they'd like.
