Kentucky is back at No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for the first time since the 2009-10 season. Saint Louis is back in the Top 25 for the first time since 1993-94.
The Wildcats (6-0) replaced North Carolina, which had been No. 1 since the preseason poll, on Monday, receiving 46 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. The Tar Heels (5-1) dropped to fifth following their 90-80 loss to UNLV in the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational.
Ohio State (6-0) moved up from third to second and had 17 first-place votes, while Duke (7-0), which won the EA Sports Maui Invitational, jumped from sixth to third and had the other two No. 1 votes.
Syracuse, North Carolina, Louisville, Baylor, Connecticut, Wisconsin and Florida rounded out the top 10.
UNLV (7-0) used the win over North Carolina to move in at 18th. The Runnin' Rebels were ranked for four weeks last season.
Saint Louis (6-0), which beat Boston College, Villanova and Oklahoma to win the 76 Classic, moves in at No. 23, the Billikens' first time in the poll in almost two decades.
North Carolina is at Kentucky on Saturday, a matchup that would have had No. 1 facing No. 2.
This is Kentucky's 90th week at No. 1, fourth on the all-time list behind UCLA (134), Duke (122) and North Carolina (108).
Before the one-week appearance at No. 1 in 2009-10, the Wildcats' last time on top of the rankings was the final poll of 2002-03.
Xavier moved up one place to 11th and was followed by Alabama, Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, Marquette, Pittsburgh, UNLV, Gonzaga and Vanderbilt. The last five ranked teams were Mississippi State, Memphis, Saint Louis, California and Texas A&M.
Florida State (5-2) dropped out from 22nd following losses to Harvard and Connecticut in the Battle 4 Atlantis.
Arizona (4-2) fell from No. 23 after a home loss to San Diego State.
Missouri had the week's biggest jump, using easy wins over Notre Dame, California and Binghamton to move from 21st to No. 13. Memphis, which lost to Michigan and Georgetown in the Maui Invitational, had the biggest fall, dropping from No. 8 to 22nd.

I like what I've seen from Bama so far.  We've got a couple of nagging injuries that we need to get healed up, though.  We've got a good chance to do more than just make the tournament this year.

If Obama's dumbass calls on Thursday, Cal needs to tell him to shove it and hang up the phone.

I tell ya, I am so excited about this team. These guys are such a cohesive unit! I look forward to all the exciting games on our schedule, starting tomorrow, when #1 Kentucky takes on #5 North Carolina. NC will be in Lexington looking for Blood! They want vengeance for a #1 ranking lost, and a final four denied. Kentucky has its hands full, but with skill, pride, and determination on their side, I believe tomorrow the Wildcats will emerge having shown that #1 ranking is justified, and the ranking will be solidified next week. Go CATS!!!!!

This is starting to smell like 2009.  Do I see an upset in Columbia again this year?




























































Nope...we'll lose by 30.
