Kansas rose to No. 3 behind Kentucky and Syracuse, the top two teams the past five weeks. Check out the full rankings.

Kentucky received 63 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday with Syracuse getting the other two.

Kansas, Duke, Michigan State and North Carolina all moved up one place to be third through sixth. Missouri, which lost twice last week, dropped four spots to seventh and was followed by Marquette, Baylor and Ohio State.

Creighton is the week's lone newcomer, returning to the rankings at No. 25 after two weeks out of the poll. The Bluejays, winners of four consecutive, replace New Mexico, which moved in last week for the first time this season at No. 18, then fell out after losing two games.

Florida State, the third ranked team to lose two games last week, dropped from 15th to 22nd.
