Not many changes
(AP) — The first AP regular-season men’s basketball poll looks similar to the pre-season version. Kentucky kept the top spot despite struggling for a half against Buffalo, earning 49 first-place votes from the 64-member national media panel. Arizona was at No. 2 and earned four first-place votes, with No. 3 Wisconsin receiving seven and No. 4 Duke four.
No. 7 Louisville and No. 8 Florida swapped spots in the only change in the top 10. Kansas was fifth, North Carolina sixth, with Virginia and Texas closing out the top 10.
Harvard, tied for No. 25, dropped out after losing to Holy Cross.
