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
Georgetown, Duke, West Virginia and Purdue rounded out the top
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.
