AP Top 25 poll: Kansas, Michigan State, Villanova, Virginia still on top

The penultimate Associated Press Top 25 poll was released on Monday, and for the first time this season, the 25 teams who made the poll are identical to the 25 who were in the week before.

Now, we do have some shifting within the rankings, but overall, there are no new reps. The biggest jump came from Kentucky, which jumped from No. 22 to No. 16. The Wildcats will surely be a trendy Final Four pick — and with good reason — given what they’ve shown as of late. There were three teams that shared the biggest fall this week: Miami (seventh to 11th), Maryland (13th to 18th) and Iowa (16th to 20th).

Here’s the full poll:

1. Kansas (27-4)

2. Michigan State (26-5)

3. Villanova (27-4)

4. Virginia (24-6)

5. Xavier (26-4)

6. Oklahoma (24-6)

7. North Carolina (25-6)
