The top of the Associated Press Top 25 men's college basketball poll got a brand new look on Monday after a wild week in the sport that saw eight of the top 10 teams take a tumble over the week which included all six of the top six stumbling on Saturday. Gonzaga and Arizona, however, retained its standings as the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the sport, respectively.
After that we have a reshaped top 10 on the heels of a chaotic week was led by Baylor moving from No. 10 to No. 3 after its big weekend win over then-No. 5 Kansas. Duke also made a big jump to No. 5. They were the only top-10 teams to not take a loss from the week that was.
Meanwhile, carnage ensured that a huge faction of the top teams fell. Purdue fell the furthest among last week's top-10 from No. 4 to No. 8 after its road loss to on-the-bubble Michigan State, but it was not alone as Auburn dropped two spots to No. 5, Kentucky bounced one rung down to No. 6 and Villanova and Texas Tech moved out of the top 10 entirely to No. 11 and No. 12. They were replaced by Providence after it clinched the Big East regular season and Wisconsin after its road win over Rutgers on Saturday moved it into the driver's seat in the Big Ten race.
The latest AP poll is below with first-place votes in parentheses. It marks the first time in two weeks Gonzaga has not been the unanimous No. 1 and the first time since January that more than two teams have earned first place votes.
