Unbeaten Kentucky, Virginia stay 1-2 atop AP Top 25 poll
The nation’s two unbeatens retain their spots atop the AP Top 25.
For the second straight week, Kentucky was No. 1 in 63 of 65 votes cast Monday, while Virginia stayed at No. 2.
The Wildcats (17-0) have been No. 1 in every poll and were the unanimous choice for five straight weeks before two voters switched to the Cavaliers (17-0) last week.
Both teams had a pair of double-digit conference wins last week.
Gonzaga remained in third, while Villanova swapped places with Duke. The Blue Devils fell from fourth to fifth after a loss to Miami that ended a 41-game home winning streak followed by a win at Louisville.
No. 22 Dayton, No. 23 Indiana and No. 25 Iowa entered the poll for the first time this season.
