AP and Coaches Top 25 Polls: 2.29.16

Jayhawks take over the top spot in both major polls.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

After clinching their 12th straight conference title (and aided by Villanova's loss last week), Kansas has moved atop both polls almost unanimously. KU earned every first place vote except one in the AP Poll and every vote except two in the Coaches Poll.

Utah was the biggest overall mover this week, jumping from being a top-25 team into the top-15.

As for the rest of the Big 12, (in the AP Poll) you've got #6 Oklahoma, #9 West Virginia, #17 Baylor, #20 Iowa State, and #22 Texas. Texas Tech is still receiving votes.

Back in the top-25 this week are Wichita State and Saint Mary's. Also, I still see you in there, Little Rock and Stephen F Austin.
