WKU is already reaping the rewards of beating previously third ranked Louisville on Sunday. The Hilltoppers received five votes in this week's ESPN/USA Today poll, ranking the team 36th in the country.

WKU (3-2) defeated the Cardinals 68-54 at the Sommet Center in Nashville, giving the program its first win over a top three opponent since defeating Indiana 110-98 in 1967.

As a result of its loss on Sunday, Louisville (2-1) drops to eleventh in the poll, just in front of Michigan State and Tennessee.

North Carolina (7-0) received all 31 first-place votes to remain the unanimous number one team in the country, followed by Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Duke and Gonzaga.
