TORONTO -- A night that began with the unfurling of their Atlantic Division banner ended with the Toronto Raptors setting a franchise record for victories. But they barely paused to soak up the good feelings Wednesday after beating the lowly Milwaukee Bucks 110-100 to notch win No. 48. "Weve got a bigger goal," said Kyle Lowry. Greivis Vasquez -- filling in for all-star DeMar DeRozan, who was given the night off to rest up for the post-season -- scored 25 points to top the playoff-bound Raptors (48-33). Lowry added 24 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 13 rebounds, Tyler Hansbrough scored 12 points and grabbed 11 boards, while Amir Johnson finished with 10 points. "Franchise record, (but) were just going to keep pushing and see whats next for us," Johnson said. "Were always looking for the next thing, just have to keep moving." Toronto had won 47 games twice before -- in 2000-01 and 2006-07. Its been a remarkable turnaround for a team that went from 48 losses last season to now 48 wins with one game to go -- they wrap up the regular-season Wednesday at New York. "All it takes is the right chemistry, the right group of guys, and you can do whatever it takes," DeRozan said. "You dont need no big-name players, you dont need this, that. . . what people supposedly say you need. "I think were proof of that, and we continue to keep growing and keep learning and keep building and its on to the next step." The Raptors stumbled out to a 6-12 season start. The about-face came after the blockbuster seven-player trade in December that sent Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings for Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson, and Chuck Hayes. "Im glad we made the trade for those guys, they came in and theyve done an unbelievable job and the coaching staff has done an unbelievable job also," Lowry said. The Raptors never trailed Monday, and were up by as much as 22 points in the second quarter. They took an 84-69 advantage into the fourth against a Bucks team that is guaranteed to finish with the worst record in the NBA this season. But the Bucks showed some fight in the fourth, pulling to within seven points on an alley-oop dunk by Jeff Adrien with 7:27 to play. That was as close as the Bucks would come as Lowrys six points were part of a 12-5 Raptors run that put them ahead by 14 with three minutes to play. Raptors coach Dwane Casey wasnt thrilled with his teams performance. "I know its ringing hollow, but we still have to continue to work to get better," Casey said. "Were not where we need to be, defensively, offensively, for the playoffs. Were not a veteran team who can take three or four games off, and expect to come back and keep that rhythm." Ramon Sessions scored 21 points to top the Bucks (15-66) in their 14th straight loss on the road. Adrien added 19 points. The Raptors remained tied for third in the Eastern Conference with the Chicago Bulls, who beat Orlando 108-95 on Monday, so the seeding wont be determined until the final game Wednesday. The Raptors could play either Washington, Brooklyn or Charlotte in the opening round of the playoffs, beginning Saturday or Sunday. The Raptors opened the festive night by unfurling their second Atlantic Division banner -- clinched last Friday -- from the Air Canada Centre rafters. "It was cool, man. It was really cool," Lowry said. "But Ill think about it after the season, for me personally. Im sure the guys will look back and reflect after the season is over." DeRozan addressed the crowd of 18,821, saying "We want to thank you guys for the support throughout the whole season, and we want you guys to help us unfurl the banner as division champs." DeRozan counted down "3-2-1," as the banner dropped to fireworks and cheers from the crowd. "We fed off our fans, and we got to have the most loyal fans in the league," DeRozan said. "Ive been here through the struggles and the tough times, and our fans still were right there with us along this journey. It felt good to share it with them because they played a major part in it as well." Toronto had only won the division title once before -- in 2006-07, which was also the last time they made the playoffs, losing in the first round to New Jersey. Casey feared the banner celebration might work in the Bucks favour. "I think its great for the fans," Casey said. "(But) if you have anything in your trunks, youre probably going to get upset and come out swinging if you see the other team hanging a banner on you." Casey neednt have worried. The Raptors sprinted out of the gate, assembling an 11-point lead with three minutes to go in the first quarter on a three by Vasquez. They led 32-19 heading into the second. The Raptors continued to pull away in the second, a Nando De Colo three-pointer giving the home team a 22-point lead about seven minutes before halftime. But the Bucks closed the quarter with a 15-6 run and Toronto led 59-46 at the break. The Raptors went back up by 20 late in the third quarter on a three by Lowry, and led 84-69 with a quarter left to play.

Baylor had been a member of that club before a 49-17 pasting at the hands of Oklahoma State on Saturday. Alabama, as it has been all season, resides at the top. The Crimson Tide, after a 49-0 romp over Chattanooga on Saturday, received 56 first-place votes -- one more than last week -- and a total of 1,496 points from a nationwide media panel. Florida State lost one No. 1 tally from last week, but held firmly at No. 2 with four first-place votes. The Seminoles also had it easy this week with an 80-14 pounding of Idaho and will close the regular season next Saturday against a floundering Florida team before the ACC title game on Dec. 7. Ohio State, which still hasnt lost under Urban Meyer, moved up one spot to third after Baylors loss. The Buckeyes were 42-14 winners over Indiana on Saturday and will face arch-rival Michigan next Saturday in the Big House before facing Michigan State for the Big Ten title. Auburn, meanwhile, moved up two spots to fourth, setting up next Saturdays showdown with Alabama in the annual Iron Bowl. In addition to it being a huge rivalry, the winner at Jordan-Hare Stadium will also advance to the SEC Championship Game. Missouri is also in line for a berth in the SEC title game as winner of the East Division, if the Tigers can beat Texas A&M next Saturday. Missouri moved up three spots from eighth to fifth.

The second 10 consists of Michigan State, Oregon, Arizona State, Wisconsin, LSU, Fresno State, UCF, Northern Illinois, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. Oregon tumbled seven spots from fifth after a stunning loss at Arizona, while Arizona State, which claimed the Pac-12 South title with a 38-33 win over UCLA, rose six places from 19th and Texas A&M dipped 10 spots from ninth after its 34-10 loss at LSU. Fresno State and Northern Illinois are the other unbeaten teams left in major college football. The Bulldogs actually dropped a spot from 15th, while the Huskies moved up two from 20th. Both are still vying for a BCS bowl berth. Louisville, UCLA, Southern California, Duke and Notre Dame are the last five teams ranked this week. UCLA dropped eight spots from 14th after its home loss to the Sun Devils. Notre Dame is the lone newcomer, replacing Ole Miss. The Fighting Irish are ranked for a third different time this year and are back after a two-week absence. The Rebels, ranked for four weeks in September, had just a one-week stay this time around at No. 24 after falling to Missouri on Saturday. Next weeks ranked matchups, in addition to the SEC clashes between Alabama and Auburn and Texas A&M and Missouri, include Clemson at South Carolina, Notre Dame at Stanford and the annual USC-UCLA battle at the Coliseum.
