NCAA Basketball Rankings: Kentucky, Syracuse, Missouri Still On Top

The top five teams remained the same in both the AP and coaches' top 25 polls this week.

Kentucky (26-1), Syracuse (27-1) and Missouri (25-2) remained the first three teams in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll for a second consecutive week.

The Wildcats again were again a unanimous No. 1 choice by the coaches, and received all but two first-place votes from the AP. The second-ranked Orange received the other pair of nods for the top spot

Duke and Kansas rounded out the coaches' top five, while the pair were flip-flopped by the AP.

While the top of both polls remained familiar, there were major changes at the bottom where both Temple and New Mexico made their debut appearances in each set of rankings. The Lobos came in at No. 18 in the AP poll and No. 21 in the coaches, while the Owls premiered at No. 22 in both.
