UNDATED (AP) — Kansas is celebrating their finish atop the final Top 25 from The Associated Press. The regular-season Big 12 champions, who were 28-3 when the season abruptly ended after the first day of the conference tournament last week, received 63 of 65 first-place votes from a national media panel in balloting released Wednesday.
That easily outdistanced No. 2 Gonzaga and No. 3 Dayton, each of which received a first-place vote.
Florida State was fourth, easily the best finish ever for the Seminoles, while Baylor rounded out the top five after spending a longer stretch at No. 1 than any other team during a topsy-turvy season.
Wisconsin finished 17th, Illinois 21st, and Iowa was 25th. The highest ranked Big 10 team in front of the Badgers was Michigan State ranked 9th.
