College basketball rankings: Kansas is the unanimous No. 1, Dayton up to No. 3 in AP Top 25 poll
The top-10 got a major reshuffle with only three teams holding their same spot from last week
Kansas is the unanimous No. 1 team in the latest AP Top 25 college basketball rankings updated Monday, one of only two unchanged teams in a reshuffled top-five. Gonzaga moved up one spot to No. 2 and Dayton jumped one spot to No. 3 while Baylor fell from No. 2 to No. 4. San Diego State held firm at No. 5.
The rest of the top 10 had a shakeup as well with Maryland serving as the only team that did not change, holding steady at No. 9. Kentucky comes in at No. 6 just ahead of Florida State, Seton Hall and Maryland, with Louisville rounding out the top 10.
It's the second consecutive week Kansas comes in at No. 1 after Baylor's long reign at the top. The Jayhawks took out Baylor last Saturday to take the top-ranking from the Bears, then beat Oklahoma State by 25 last Monday. Their week ended with a 62-58 road win over rival Kansas State on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Bears lost their second game in three tries on Saturday, falling 75-72 on the road to TCU.
Dayton may have the most to celebrate among those inside the top 10, with its No. 3 ranking the highest for the program since the 1955-56 season when it climbed as high as No. 2. The Flyers have an 18-game winning streak -- tied for the longest in the country with New Mexico State -- and are poised to be a No. 2 seed on Selection Sunday, according to.
