Notre Dame is the only school with 2 top-5 basketball programs

The Notre Dame men’s basketball team made waves on Monday, rising eight spots in the AP Top 25. The Fighting Irish are now the No. 5 team in the nation after winning the Maui Invitational.

But the Notre Dame women’s team is outstanding, too. The Fighting Irish jumped three spots and are now the No. 3 team in the women’s AP Poll.

The Notre Dame women are 6-0 on the season and sit behind Connecticut and Texas in the rankings. The men are also 6-0, and sit behind Duke, Kansas, Michigan State and Villanova.

It’s going to be a fun few months in South Bend, despite the football team’s recent struggles.
