Men's Basketball AP Top 25:12.22.14

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

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The top 11 remained unchanged with the exception of Virginia and Wisconsin switching spots in the latest edition of the AP poll.

Miami FL, Butler, San Diego State, and Michigan State all fell out of the poll while Baylor, Northern Iowa, Colorado State, and TCU took their place.

The Big 12 now has seven teams ranked in the top 25 (with an eighth receiving votes).  Texas leads the way at #9, followed by #10 Kansas (for now, the loss to Temple may change that), #12 Iowa State, #18 West Virginia, #19 Oklahoma, #22 Baylor, and #25 TCU.  Oklahoma State is receiving votes.

Wichita State stayed steady at #11.  Ohio State was the biggest mover of the week, falling from #12 to #21 after getting run by North Carolina.
