Kentucky Basketball Falls Four Spots in New AP poll

After a wild week in college basketball, the AP Poll is all shaken up. The new Top 25 was just released and Kentucky is No. 19, down four spots from last Monday. Clearly, the win over did little to impress the voters.

With over a dozen ranked teams losing last week, the top ten looks quite different.  is the new No. 1 team in the country, followed by Texas, Virginia, Arizona, and Purdue. North Carolina, previously No. 1, is down to No. 18. Gonzaga, ranked No. 6 a week ago, is now No. 14. From the SEC, Arkansas and Alabama are tied at No. 11, followed by Tennessee at No. 13 and Auburn at No. 15.

Michigan, Kentucky’s opponent in London on Sunday, is still not ranked. UCLA, who the Cats play in New York on Dec. 17, is No. 21.
