Why Syracuse didn’t drop in Top 25 (and one) after loss to Wisconsin

Yes, I know, Syracuse lost Wednesday to Wisconsin. But the Orange still have two top-30 KenPom wins — including a victory over the Texas A&M team ranked directly below them — and zero losses outside of the top 35. So I couldn’t find a great reason to drop them below any of the schools currently ranked below them, which is why Syracuse is still 13th in the updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one). Meantime, Michigan State beat Louisville on Wednesday to remain undefeated. The Spartans are second only to Kentucky in the Top 25 (and one).
