There's a new No. 1 team in the latest NCAA basketball rankings following the Ohio St. Buckeyes' loss to the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday. The 24-1 Kansas Jayhawks moved to No. 1 in the newest AP Poll. They captured 22 first-place votes. Ohio St. fell only one spot to No. 2, taking 14 first-place votes along the way.
The 22-3 Texas Longhorns remained at No. 3 after defeating the Baylor Bears on Saturday afternoon. They received 23 first-place votes, demonstrating some controversy on which team is No. 1. The Pittsburgh Panthers garnered six-first place votes as the No. 4 team. With no undefeated teams remaining, there's a good chance there will be no unanimous selection for No. 1 overall for the rest of the regular season.
The Duke Blue Devils completed the top five while the San Diego St. Aztecs and the BYU Cougars at No. 6 and No. 7, respectively. The Georgetown Hoyas and the Wisconsin Badgers entered the top 10 with the final two spots there. The Villanova Wildcats, previously the ninth-ranked team, dropped down to No. 15 after their losses to Rutgers and Pitt.
