It's Unanimous: Kentucky No. 1 In AP's Latest Top 25

There are very few certainties in college hoops, but here’s one: when you have the best player in the country and the best record, you’re going to be ranked number one in the country. It took three months, but Kentucky’s finally back on top of college basketball. How long will they stay?

It could be a while. For the record, I don’t think anybody’s beating that team this year. For perspective: if you took away the best player in the country (John Wall) from Kentucky, wouldn't they still be a top 5 team? Probably, right?
