Following losses to last-place Vanderbilt and first place Auburn, LSU basketball has dropped in the latest top 25 polls.

Last week, LSU ranked #18 in the AP Poll and sat atop the SEC standings.

They lost to Vanderbilt, who earned their first conference victory of the season in the process, then dropped a close one in overtime to #11 Auburn, who now is in first place in the SEC, tied with Kentucky and LSU, as all three teams are 8-2 in conference play.

In the latest polls, LSU fell to #25 in the AP, and just missed out on cracking the top 25 of the coaches poll.
