Spartans once again 5th in latest AP poll
Arizona is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the fifth straight week, but for the first time in that span there are changes in the Top 25.
The Wildcats (15-0) were still a runaway No. 1, with Syracuse, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State remaining the next four teams. The Spartans and Buckeyes will meet in an early heavyweight matchup in the Big Ten Tuesday night.
Wichita State was sixth, followed by Baylor, Villanova, Iowa State and Florida.
Duke, which lost at Notre Dame, dropped to No. 16, the first time the Blue Devils are out of the Top 10 since December 2007.
