CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Xavier Musketeers (16-1, 4-1 Big East) jumped two spots in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll to earn their highest ranking ever in program history.

XU ranked No. 5 in the latest AP Top 25 poll and a school-record-tying No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches poll released Monday. XU was No. 6 in both polls for Dec. 21 and Dec. 28.

Xavier earned victories against DePaul and Marquette last week.

Villanova, the only team to beat the Musketeers this season, ranked No. 4 in the AP Top 25. Other Big East opponents, Providence and Butler, ranked No. 16 and 18.

The Musketeers will take on Georgetown (11-7, 4-2 Big East) Tuesday and Seton Hall (13-4, 3-2 Big East) Saturday.
