Kansas ranked No. 21 in AP poll

There's a new No. 1 team in college basketball for the fourth straight week and Kansas is ranked for the first time since December.

After wins last week at Nebraska and vs. Colorado, the Jayhawks, 17-4 and 6-0 in the Big 12 heading into tonight's game at Baylor, are ranked No. 21 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll.

Connecticut jumped from No. 2 to the top spot in poll, replacing Duke. This is the Huskies' first time at No. 1 since 2006.

The last three No. 1s all remained in the top seven: No. 6 Pittsburgh, No. 7 Wake Forest and No. 4 Duke. The Blue Devils lost last week to Wake Forest on a last-second shot.

Connecticut received 64 first-place votes from the 72-member national media panel. Oklahoma, which moved up to second from fourth, was No. 1 on five ballots.

North Carolina moved from fifth to third in the rankings. Completing the top 10 were Duke, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Marquette, Xavier and Clemson.
