A fall in the polls - Tucson News Now

A fall in the polls

 Kentucky is still undefeated and again the unanimous No. 1 team in the AP Top 25 poll.

The Wildcats (13-0) got all 65 first-place votes Monday, marking the fourth week in a row they were No. 1 on every ballot cast. They have been the top team for all eight polls this season.

Duke (10-0), which was idle last week, remained second. Virginia (11-0) was third and Wisconsin (12-1) fourth. Both are up two spots from last week.

Louisville (11-1) slipped one spot to fifth after its 58-50 home loss Saturday to Kentucky, ahead of Villanova (12-0) and Gonzaga (12-1).

Arizona (12-1), after a 71-67 loss to UNLV, dropped five spots from third to eighth.

Georgetown (8-3) was the only poll newcomer at No. 25, replacing still-undefeated TCU.
