Memphis made it to a second week as number one.
The Tigers top this week's Associated Press' college basketball
poll, doubling their only other stint as a top-ranked team. Memphis
went to number one in January 1983 and lost hours later.
The 19-and-0 Tigers received 46 first-place votes from the
72-member national media panel.
Kansas, at 20-and-0 the only other unbeaten team in Division I,
holds second for a second straight week. The Jayhawks got the other
26 number-one votes.
Duke moved up one place to third, followed by formerly
top-ranked North Carolina and UCLA.
Georgetown moves up to sixth, while Tennessee dropped from third
to seventh following a loss at Kentucky,
Michigan State is eighth, with Washington State and Texas
rounding out the top 10.
Indiana, Butler, Wisconsin, Stanford, Xavier, Drake, Marquette,
Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt and Florida comprise the second 10.
Saint Mary's, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Mississippi and Baylor
are the last five ranked teams.
