North Carolina took a tumble and Butler entered the Ttop 25 in the latest edition of the AP men's basketball poll.  Wisconsin and Arizona flip-flopped inside the Top 5 while Texas, Louisville, and Wichita State inch their way up the Top 10.

Kansas held firm at #11.  Other Big 12 teams in the poll include #6 Texas, #16 West Virginia, #20 Iowa State, and #22 Oklahoma.  Oklahoma State, Baylor, and TCU (!!!!) are in the receiving votes category.

Future KU opponents Florida and Georgetown are also in the receiving votes category.
