College Basketball Top 25 Poll Roundup for Week 6

Kentucky is standing pat in the latest round of top 25 polls.

After beating Hofstra and Valparaiso last week, UK is still sitting at the No. 6 spot in the latest AP Top 25 Poll. They're actually one spot ahead of their next opponent, North Carolina, as the two blue bloods get set to face off in Las Vegas in the CBS Sports Classic this coming Saturday.

Villanova is still holding onto the top spot, despite their narrow win over Notre Dame last week. UCLA, Kansas, Baylor, and Duke round out the top five. No. 16 South Carolina is the only SEC club other than UK in the newest poll. Florida dropped out following their narrow loss at Florida State.
