Michigan State moves to No. 1 in AP poll

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State is No. 1 in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll for the first time in 13 years.

The Spartans were easily No. 1 with 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. The Spartans earned the top spot by beating then-top-ranked Kentucky last week 78-74 in Chicago in the earliest matchup of the top two teams in the country.

Kansas, which beat Duke in the other game in the big doubleheader last week, moved from No. 5 to No. 2 and received seven first-place votes.

Connecticut is followed by Duke, Tennessee, Louisville and Notre Dame.

Stanford fell three spots to sixth. Kentucky, Maryland, Baylor and Oklahoma round out the top 10.

California fell seven spots to No. 17 after losing at George Washington on Friday night.

DePaul came in at No. 25, the first team from the new Big East Conference to get ranked. Dayton dropped out of the poll after losing to Michigan State in overtime.
