AMHERST, Mass. (WGGB) — After ten weeks, the UMass men’s basketball team has fallen out of the Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The move out of the poll comes after the team lost two straight road games last week, against St. Bonaventure and St. Joseph’s.

UMass has lost three of their last four games, and are now 17-4 overall and 4-3 in the Atlantic 10 conference.

The Minutemen had been in the poll since November 25, where they entered at #24. Their highest ranking for this season was #13 on January 20.

The team’s next game is this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at the Mullins Center against La Salle.
