Kansas is No. 1 again in The Associated Press' college basketball poll.

The Jayhawks were No. 1 in the preseason Top 25 and for the first eight weeks of the regular season. They moved back into the top spot Monday after being out for three weeks. Kansas (20-1) received 54 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel.

Villanova and Syracuse moved up one place to second and third. The Wildcats (19-1) received four first-place votes while the Orange (21-1) got six.

Kentucky was a unanimous No. 1 last week but dropped to fourth after losing to South Carolina, its first loss of the season. The Wildcats (20-1) had one first-place vote.

Butler and Northern Iowa returned to the poll this week, replacing Connecticut and UAB.
