Kentucky Jumps Into Top 5 of Coaches Poll

Kentucky's big win over North Carolina in the CBS Sports Classic was so good and fun, it prompted the coaches voting in the weekly USA Today Coaches Poll to push UK into the top five.
Aside from that, here's the shocker: the polls saw no changes. Not in terms of who's out and who's in. For the first time this season, the top 25 did not move teams from week to week. It's the same 25 now that it was a week ago.
Biggest riser: Butler jumped five spots after it's win in the Crossroads Classic over Indiana. Biggest faller: Yes, Indiana. The Hoosiers go from No. 9 to No. 16.
Villanova, UCLA, Kansas, Duke and Kentucky are this week's top 5 while Baylor, Gonzaga, North Carolina, Creighton, and Virginia round out the top 10.
Two top-10 teams fell this week -- one at the hands of another top-10 team -- which prompted some movement of the AP poll this week.
Villanova, UCLA, Kansas, Baylor and Durk round out the top 5 in the AP poll and Kentucky, Gonzaga, North Carolina, Creighton and Louisville fill out the top ten.
