WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Purdue basketball was ranked No. 1 overall on Monday in the AP Poll with all 61 first place votes. No. 1 is the program's highest ever ranking.

Purdue (8-0) topped Florida State and Iowa last week to remain undefeated. The Boilermakers have risen one spot from No. 2 last week. Purdue only received nine first place votes last week, compared to then-No.1 Duke's 51 votes.

Purdue men's basketball has sold out the remainder of its home games, which means Mackey Arena will have sold out 41 consecutive games at the end of the 2021-2022 season.

Next up: Purdue travels to Rutgers Thursday to play the Scarlet Knights at 7:00pm.
