Another week has begun, and that means a new college basketball AP Poll has been released.

Last week, the Red Raiders were ranked no. 13 and looking to crack the top 10 for the first time in the 2018 season.

The new rankings have the Red Raiders up two spots from last week, making them the no. 11 team in the nation.

Along with the Red Raiders being up two spots from last week's rankings, they are one of nine remaining undefeated teams in the nation. While it still may not be a top 10 ranking, any time the Red Raiders are in front of North Carolina, my heart feels good.

The Red Raiders are back at home this week to face the Northwestern State Demons on Wednesday, December 12th. Then, they take on Abilene Christian University at the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum on December 15th for the final time.

This will more than likely set up an undefeated Red Raiders team taking on the Duke Blue Devils, who were ranked no. 2 in the nation this week, on December 20th, 2018 from Madison Square Garden.
