Michigan State, Kansas and Oklahoma held the top three spots in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for a second straight week. There was a shakeup in the rest of the top 10 after a weekend of upsets.
The Spartans (12-0) were a near unanimous choice, receiving all but one first-place vote from the 65-member national media panel. Kansas (9-1) got the other No. 1 vote.
Utah, which returned to the rankings following its win over Duke on Saturday, and South Carolina, which is ranked for the first time since the final poll of 2003-04, are the week's newcomers at 24th and 25th. They replace UCLA and Connecticut.
