Men's Basketball AP Top 25: 11.17.14

Kentucky retains the top spot, KU at #5

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Very little movement in the AP Top 25 Poll this week.  #18 Oklahoma and #19 Michigan State switched spots, and Harvard fell out of the Top 25, but there was no other movement with the exception of the teams receiving votes.

Kentucky stays at the top spot with Arizona, Wisconsin, and Duke all garnering first place votes.  Kansas came in #5.  Other Big 12 teams include #10 Texas, #14 Iowa State, and #18 Oklahoma.  Big 12 teams receiving votes include Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and Baylor.

Regional teams include #11 Wichita State and #21 Nebraska with Colorado, Iowa, Arkansas, and Northern Iowa.  For some reason Memphis is also receiving votes despite their exhibition loss to a D2 school.
