Kansas is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll.
The Jayhawks moved up one spot Monday following Ohio State’s first defeat, a loss at Wisconsin. The Buckeyes had been No. 1 for four weeks, the last two as a unanimous choice.
Kansas, ranked No. 1 for 15 weeks last season, received 22 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Ohio State received 14 first-place votes and was 13 points behind. Texas is third, although it has the most first-place votes with 23. Pittsburgh is fourth, voted No. 1 on six ballots.
Duke, which was No. 1 the first nine weeks, is No. 5. Completing the top 10 are: San Diego State, BYU, Notre Dame, Georgetown and Wisconsin.
Xavier enters the Top 25, replacing West Virginia.
