College basketball rankings: Gonzaga, Duke among top five in final regular season AP Top 25 Poll
The final poll of the regular season in college hoops sets the stage for a big week in conference tourneys
The final AP Top 25 of the regular season has Gonzaga holding on at No. 1, while Virginia is again No. 2 and North Carolina checks in right behind. Rounding out the top five is No. 4 Kentucky and No. 5 Duke, which fends off Michigan State and Texas Tech, both of which -- unlike Duke -- finished atop their regular-season standings in their respective conferences.
The biggest jump in this week's poll is Auburn, which comes in at No. 22 after being unranked a week ago. Marquette has dropped four straight games but have still managed to stay in the Top 25; the Golden Eagles are 23rd and slip seven spots this week. Kansas and Cincinnati, both of which fell four spots, are behind Marquette in terms of most spots dropped.
