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. Louisville stayed third and got the other seven first-place votes. Kentucky dropped to fourth and was followed by Arizona, Duke, Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Syracuse and VCU.

The Huskies beat Stanford, Maryland and Penn State by an average of 18 points and once again are unanimous No. 1. UConn has a busy week with home games against Oregon, Boston University, Monmouth and St. Bonaventure.

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.
