College Basketball Coaches Top 25 Poll Updated

For the second straight week, a new No. 1 is atop the latest AP Top 25 poll.

Following Baylor's blowout loss at West Virginia last week, the Bears have fallen from the top spot, allowing Kansas to claim the No. 1 ranking. The Jayhawks have won 16 straight following their opening loss to Indiana, and they'll be coming to Rupp Arena in two weeks.

As for the Kentucky Wildcats, they're still ranked No. 5 in the latest Coaches poll. Following a narrow road win over Vanderbilt and a home win over Auburn, Kentucky moved past Baylor (6) to climb back into the top five.

Here is the fully-updated Coaches poll:
