Texas inches closer to Kansas in men's hoops poll

Texas' victory over North Carolina on Saturday swayed a few voters in the media and enabled the Longhorns to move closer to top-ranked Kansas in the latest Associated Press men's college basketball poll.

Kansas (10-0), which posted a 75-64 win over Michigan on Saturday, remained a solid No. 1 with 55 first-place votes and 1,611 total points from a nationwide media panel.

However, Texas (10-0) took six top votes away from the Jayhawks for a total of seven and 1,543 points after its 103-90 win over North Carolina in the first basketball game at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

Kentucky (11-0) again garnered a No. 1 vote and remained third, followed by Purdue and Syracuse. The Orange again received two first-place votes.

West Virginia, Duke, Villanova, Michigan State and North Carolina round out this week's top 10. Michigan State moved up three spots after an 80-58 win over IPFW and will visit Austin to meet the Longhorns on Tuesday. The Tar Heels, despite their third loss of the season on Saturday, remained 10th.

The second 10 consists of Connecticut, Kansas State, New Mexico, Georgetown, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Ohio State, Florida, Texas A&M and Butler. Kansas State moved up five places, while unbeaten New Mexico vaulted six spots. Both were unranked before last week.

Tennessee tumbled seven spots after a loss at Southern California, while Florida dropped five places after losing to Richmond.

The last five teams ranked this week are Temple, Washington, Texas Tech, Clemson and Gonzaga. Temple is ranked for the first time since November 2001, while Clemson is back in the poll after an earlier stint this season.

Texas Tech dropped seven spots after a loss at Wichita State, while Gonzaga fell 10 spots after a 76-41 loss to Duke at Madison Square Garden.

Georgia Tech and Cincinnati both dropped out. The Yellow Jackets lost to Florida State in overtime on Sunday, while the Bearcats lost to UAB last Wednesday.

In addition to the Michigan State/Texas matchup, Tuesday's slate also features Texas A&M at Washington. On Wednesday, Ole Miss will visit West Virginia.
