Pitt moved up six spots in the rankings to No. 19 in the new Associated Press poll that was released today. After losing four of five, the Panthers have won three consecutive games, including a 98-95 triple-overitme victory against West Virginia Friday night.

West Virginia, which was No. 5 last week, fell three spots to No. 8. The Mountaineers lost twice last week, with the other setback coming against No. 3 Villanova.
