Men's Basketball AP Top 25: 12.29.14

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

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Well, we finally had a bit of movement in the polls, including in the Top 10.  Kentucky and Duke stayed at #1/#2, but for some reason, Louisville fell after being the first team this year to lose to Kentucky by only single digits.  Virginia was able to take advantage and moved up to #3.  Arizona dropped to #8 after their loss to UNLV.

Wichita State and Washington also dropped a bit this week, but both remain ranked.  The only team to fall out of the poll this week was still unbeaten TCU, which was replaced by Georgetown.

Our mighty mighty Jayhawks only fell three spots to #13.  Other Big 12 teams in the poll include #9 Iowa State, #11 Texas, #17 West Virginia, #18 Oklahoma, and #22 Baylor.  TCU would be #26.  No other Big 12 teams were receiving votes this week.

Wichita State fell to #16 after their loss to George Washington in Hawaii.
