NEW YORK (AP) — Kansas has become the fifth team to occupy the top of The Associated Press men’s basketball poll already this season.
The Jayhawks picked up 47 of 65 first-place votes to move up one spot on the rankings. They unseated Louisville, which dropped to third following last Tuesday’s 70-57 loss to Texas Tech.
Gonzaga claimed 15 first-place votes to climb from sixth to second.
Former No. 1 Duke moved up three spots to fourth, just ahead of Ohio State. Kentucky, Maryland, Oregon, Virginia and Baylor round out the top 10.
No. 23 Penn State is ranked for the first time in 23 years. The poll doesn’t include North Carolina, which had been ranked since February 2014.
