​After what was a wild week for college basketball the Associated Press has released the new AP Poll and there's a surprise team topping the rankings. 


The ​Gonzaga Bulldogs were awarded the No. 1 seed after dominating Brigham Young in their last outing to improve to 27-2 on the season. A ​Blue Devils' loss to North Carolina saw Duke drop to No. 3 while Virginia jumped up to No. 2. The Tar Heels jumped up to No. 5. 

​Tennessee plummeted to No. 7 following their loss to LSU, while Michigan State's convincing win over Michigan bumped the Spartans up to No. 6 in the nation. 


Another big riser was Kansas State which now sits in the No. 16 spot, just one behind their in-state rivals, Kansas, who they play tonight. Maryland also jumped up seven spots to No. 17, while Nevada dropped six positions to the No. 12 ranking. 

​Wofford has entered the Top 25 for the first time in school history, a monumental achievement for the South Carolina school. 


Washington fills out the rankings at No. 25, the only Pac-12 team to be represented in the poll amid a disastrous season for the conference.
