Kansas is again the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll and there is a different No. 2 for the fourth straight week.

Syracuse moves into the second spot today, its highest ranking since a six-week stretch at No. 1 in 1989-90.

Kansas, which received 55 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel, is No. 1 for the 11th time this season out of 14 polls. Syracuse moved up one place and had eight first-place votes.

Kentucky, which was No. 1 on two ballots, was third, while Villanova and West Virginia, which meet Monday night, are fourth and fifth.

UNLV moves into the poll at No. 23 giving the Mountain West Conference three teams in the Top 25, one more than the Atlantic Coast Conference.
