Kentucky Regains No. 1 Spot in AP Poll After Syracuse Falls

Jan. 23 (Bloomberg) -- The University of Kentucky regained the top spot in the Associated Press college basketball poll this week following Syracuse University’s first loss of the season.

The Wildcats (19-1), who were ranked No. 1 for two weeks earlier this season, received 61 of the 65 first-place votes. A Final Four participant in last year’s National College Athletic Association tournament, Kentucky lost its top ranking following a Dec. 10 loss to Indiana.

Missouri (18-1) is ranked second and Syracuse (20-1), which lost 67-58 to Big East-rival Notre Dame on Jan. 21, is third. Both the Tigers and Orange received two first-place votes. Ohio State University (17-3) and the University of Kansas (16-3) round out the Top 5.

Murray State University, at 20-0 the only undefeated team left in the NCAA’s top division, moved up one spot to No. 11. The Racers beat Memphis, then No. 21, on Dec. 11 in their only game against a ranked opponent this season.

Florida State (13-6), which lost to the Ivy League’s Harvard University and Princeton University this season, re-entered the rankings at No. 23.

The Big Ten leads all conferences with five ranked teams -- Ohio State, No. 10 Michigan State (16-4), Indiana (16-4), No. 20 Michigan (15-5) and No. 25 Wisconsin (16-5).
