Michigan State jumps to No. 1 in men's hoops AP Top 25
Michigan State is No. 1 in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll for the first time since early in the 2013-14 season.
The Spartans (9-0) jumped from third to a runaway first following last week's losses by then-Nos. 1 and 2 Kentucky and Maryland. Michigan State received 62 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel.
Kansas (6-1), which had one first-place vote, moved from fourth to second, while North Carolina, the preseason No. 1, jumped from ninth to third and received two votes for No. 1.
Iowa State moved up one spot to fourth and was followed by Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, Duke, Villanova and Virginia.
Butler, at No. 18, and Utah, at No. 25, are the week's newcomers, both having been ranked earlier this season. They replace Syracuse, which was No. 14, and Texas A&M, which was 18th.
