Another week, another new No. 1 in college basketball.
Kansas moved into the top spot in the AP Top 25 poll, released Monday. Louisville held the top spot a week ago, but a 70-57 loss to unranked Texas Tech cost the Cardinals.
Instead, Kansas (9-1) moved up one place on the strength of lopsided victories over Milwaukee and Missouri-Kansas City, followed by Gonzaga (11-1), which rose four places to No. 2.
Plenty of movement at the top
The top 10 was reshuffled, with only Virginia (8-1) holding the same spot from last week at No. 9.
Louisville (10-1) fell to No. 3, followed by Duke (9-1) and Ohio State (9-1). The Blue Devils moved up from the No. 7 ranking, while the Buckeyes fell two spots after being upset by Minnesota.
Rounding out the top 10 are Kentucky (8-1), Maryland (10-1), Oregon (8-2), Virginia and Baylor (8-1).
Plummeting out of the top 10 was Michigan, which was No. 5 last week but fell to No. 14 after losing to unranked Illinois and Oregon.
So far this season, Michigan State, Kentucky, Duke and Louisville have fallen from the No. 1 ranking. The Spartans (7-3) sit at No. 15.
Moving into the poll this week were No. 22 Washington (7-2), No. 23 Penn State (9-2), No. 24 Texas Tech (6-3) and No. 25 West Virginia (9-1). This marks the Nittany Lions’ first appearance in the top 25 since Jan. 8, 1996.
Falling out of the top 25 were North Carolina, Xavier, Colorado and Seton Hall.
