Quick AP Basketball poll question

    The team in our coverage area was in the Top 25 last week, so they're listed in today's sports budget as a Top 25 team. But they were dropped, according to today's AP poll story. So what do I do in the score overlay? Do I still refer to them as a Top 25 team?

    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone? Bueller?
  3. No. They're no longer a Top 25 team. Make sure somewhere in story you refer to "Tech State, which had been No. xx until being dropped out of the poll Monday ..."

    That was my thought, too. The AP budget just threw me off. Thanks.
