Monday's latest AP Top 25 Poll has Tennessee still a clear-cut No. 1, with Duke and Virginia also receiving a handful of first-place votes.

 

Kentucky's win over Kansas put the Wildcats into the top 10, while KU drops to No. 11. Houston, which is the only team to hit 20 wins so far, is 13th. And Iowa State remains in the fold after splitting games last week at Kansas and at Mississippi, which drops out of the AP Top 25. 

 

Monday, garnering 31 of a 32 possible first-place votes. Duke, Virginia and Gonzaga all stayed at their respective positions from a week ago at the Nos. 2-4 spots, while Michigan took Michigan State's spot at No. 5 after the Spartans fell to Purdue on Sunday.

 

The first-ranked Volunteers received 30 first-place votes last week, and given its performance this week -- and over the last two months -- it should come as no surprise that it won over another voter. They won at Vanderbilt in overtime on Wednesday night and against West Virginia convincingly on Saturday, extending their win streak to 14.

 

Dropping out of the top 10 this week is Kansas, which lost to Kentucky on Saturday, and Virginia Tech, which lost to North Carolina on the road. New to the poll this week is Purdue at No. 18, as well as LSU at No. 19 and Wisconsin at No. 23.
