Kentucky is on top of The Associated Press’ college basketball poll, and the Wildcats are a unanimous No. 1.
The only unbeaten team in Division I, Kentucky (19-0) received all the first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday, its first time at No. 1 since the final poll of 2002-03.
The Wildcats, No. 2 Kansas, Villanova, Syracuse and Michigan State all moved up one place from last week as Texas, which was No. 1 for two weeks, dropped to sixth after losing to Kansas State and Connecticut.
Georgetown, Duke, West Virginia and Purdue rounded out the top 10.
North Carolina (12-7), the defending national champion and loser of three straight, did not receive a vote and dropped out of the poll for the first time since January 2006.
