College basketball rankings: Gonzaga falls to No. 8 in AP Top 25, Kansas and Duke hold on to top two spots
This week's AP Poll has five teams earning votes for No. 1 overall consideration
There were no huge climbers this week. Syracuse, which lost on Saturday at home to Old Dominion, drops out of the rankings. In for the Orange? Nebraska. Meanwhile, undefeated St. Johns (10-0) remains the only school without a loss to still not be ranked this season.
Overall, there wasn't a lot of movement coming off a loaded but not too noisy weekend in which many a ranked team was challenged but almost all won against unranked competition. It was also a heavy week for finals, which limited the number of games.
Looking forward, the biggest game in the next few days is No. 2 Duke vs. No. 12 Texas Tech on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. And this weekend will be highlighted by the CBS Sports Classic, which features No. 15 Ohio State playing UCLA, then No. 9 North Carolina squaring off against No. 19 Kentucky.
