Kentucky has gone the full regular season as the No. 1 team in the country and only needs one more week of strong play to become the first team since the 1990-91 UNLV squad to go wire-to-wire as No. 1.

Duke also made a move this week, jumping to No. 2 following Virginia’s loss at Louisville. The Blue Devils are followed by the Wahoos, Villanova, Arizona, Wisconsin, Gonzaga, Maryland, Kansas and Northern Iowa to round out the top 10.

Also, three teams fell out of the poll this week. Ohio State, Providence and Murray State were dropped in favor of Georgetown, Davidson and Boise State at Nos. 23-25. There is always some movement during conference tournament week, so it will be interesting to see how different these rankings are next week.
