Michigan State won three games last week and remains a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll.

The Spartans (6-0) held the top spot for a second straight week by receiving 56 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media poll.

Kansas drew eight first-place votes and remains second. Kentucky, the preseason No. 1, and Arizona moved up one spot each to third and fourth. Oklahoma State received the other No. 1 vote and jumped from seventh to fifth. Duke stayed at sixth.

Ohio State, Syracuse, Louisville and Wisconsin rounded out the top 10. Louisville dropped from third after losing to North Carolina.

Iowa and Massachusetts moved into the rankings at 23rd and 24th. They replaced VCU, which dropped from 10th after losing twice, and New Mexico, which had been 19th.
