UT is in the midst of a 14-game win streak, tied for third longest in school history, and wrapped up its second Mid-American Conference regular-season championship in the last three seasons Sunday.

The last time the Rockets were in the Top 25 occurred during the week of Nov. 19-25, 2001, when they stood at No. 24 in the AP Poll after upsetting No. 4 Duke in the season opener.

Toledo has been ranked in the Top 25 on five occasions in school history. The Rockets also appeared at No. 25 in the final regular-season poll during the 1998-99 season. Before that, UT was as high as No. 23 in the Feb. 8, 1994, and No. 25 in the Feb. 15, 1994, polls.
