NCAA Basketball Associated Press Top 25 Update
The AP Top 25 poll for men’s college basketball is officially available. There was a lot of movement this week compared to previous weeks, and we have our first back-to-back week of change at the top since Baylor took over the top spot six weeks ago.
There was also quite a bit of movement within the Top 10, and we also saw some big drops, and two new programs entered the fray this week. We take a look at all of that and more below in this week’s AP Poll Top 25 Update.
How did the Rest of the Top 10 Look?
There was only one slot that held firm in the Top 10 this week, and that was Arizona at #3. Arizona actually received a vote as #1, but it was not enough to overtake Gonzaga at #2. As mentioned above, Auburn and Gonzaga flipped at the top two spots and set off a flurry of action down the line.
Baylor moved up one spot to #4, and Kansas jumped up two spots to #5 to round out the Top 5. Purdue fell from #4 to #6 and are barely holding onto the #6 spot as Houston and UCLA are right behind them tied at #7. Purdue received 1119 total points while Houston and UCLA each got 1116 points, just showing how close those three teams are.
Duke fell three spots to #9 after being #6 a week ago and has started to show a little bit of struggles in the past few weeks. Michigan State moved up four spots and are now added into the Top 10 as they have had a really good week of basketball. Wisconsin fell out of the Top 10 as they are now sitting at #11 after falling three spots.
