Men's Basketball AP Top 25: 12.15.14

Who's up and who's down in college basketball.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Top 10 remained unchanged (although Gonzaga and Texas flipped spots) in the latest edition of the AP Top 25.  Overall, there was very little change in the ranked teams.  Northern Iowa was the only team to fall out of the poll, and Michigan State took their place at #25.

Kansas remained steady at #10.  Butler was the biggest mover, falling 8 spots but remaining in the poll at #23.

As for the rest of the Big 12, Texas came in at #9, Iowa State at #13, #15 Oklahoma, and #22 West Virginia.  Baylor, TCU, and Oklahoma State are all receiving votes.  Baylor and TCU would be #26 and #27 respectively if the poll were to go that far.

Reginally, Wichita State hung in at #11, Utah fell only one spot to #14, while Colorado State, Northern Iowa, and Arkansas all received votes.
