AP men's basketball poll: Kentucky runaway No. 1; Syracuse leads 5 new teams in Top 25


Kentucky, Maryland and Michigan State held the top three spots in The Associated Press' men's college basketball poll, but there were plenty of changes at the bottom of the Top 25.

The Wildcats (6-0) received 59 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday to stay No. 1 for a second straight week. Maryland (6-0) remained second with four first-place votes and No. 3 Michigan State (7-0) had the other two No. 1 votes.

Kansas and Iowa State switched places at fourth and fifth. They were followed by Oklahoma, Duke, Villanova, North Carolina and Virginia.

No. 14 Syracuse was the highest newcomer, with West Virginia at 20th and Providence, Louisville and Baylor filling the last three spots.

Indiana, California, Notre Dame, Connecticut, Wichita State and LSU fell from the rankings.
