The top 10 of the Coaches Top 25 Poll fluctuated quite a bit this week after big losses for several teams.

There were plenty of changes in this week's Top 25 Coaches Poll, but there were no changes in the top two spots. The Kentucky Wildcats and the Syracuse Orange each hold a 25-1 record while occupying the No. 1 and No. 2 slots, respectively. Syracuse has a contest against No. 18 Louisville on Monday night while Kentucky won't play until Saturday.

After those two teams the rest of the top 10 was jumbled. Missouri, Duke and Kansas round out the top five, the latter two teams each moving up five spots. Ohio State fell to No. 6 following its loss to now No. 8 Michigan State. North Carolina, which lost to Duke at the buzzer last Wednesday, is No. 7. Georgetown and Baylor complete the top 10.

The Mountain West saw the UNLV Rebels move u to No. 11 from No. 16 while the San Diego St. Aztecs moved from No. 14 to No. 15.
