Texas is No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for the first time.
The Longhorns (15-0) moved into the top spot Monday, replacing Kansas (14-1). The Jayhawks were No. 1 in the preseason poll and the first eight weeks of the season. Kansas dropped to third after losing to Tennessee on Sunday.
Texas received 56 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel, 47 more than Kentucky. The Wildcats (16-0) moved from third to second.
There was a lot of movement in the poll following a week in which 15 ranked teams lost at least once, including five in the top 10.
Villanova was ranked No. 4, followed by Syracuse, Purdue, Michigan State, Duke, Tennessee and West Virginia. Baylor, Miami and Clemson entered the rankings.
