Virginia among final 3 undefeated NCAA basketball teams, No. 4 in new AP top 25 poll

Virginia among final 3 undefeated NCAA basketball teams, No. 4 in new AP top 25 poll

The top four in The Associated Press men's college basketball poll remained unchanged for the third straight week. The rest of the poll, however, underwent major changes after three top-10 teams lost.

Duke remained at No. 1 in the AP Top 25 released Monday, receiving 37 of 64 first-place votes. No. 2 Michigan received nine first-place votes, No. 3 Tennessee 13 and No. 4 Virginia five.

Then the jumble begins, thanks to losses by Kansas, Nevada and Florida State.

No. 5 Gonzaga, which is finally back to full health, and No. 6 Michigan State each moved up two spots. No. 7 Kansas dropped two spots after losing to Iowa State, which moved back into the poll at No. 20.

No. 8 Texas Tech and No. 9 Virginia Tech each moved up after Nevada lost on the road to New Mexico and fell four places to No. 10. Florida State dropped four spots to No. 13 after being shut down by Virginia.

In all, every team outside the top four changed positions except No. 23 Oklahoma, which split its games last week.

Got all that?

Kansas took the biggest hit last week, not only falling 77-60 to the Cyclones, but losing big man Udoka Azubuike for the rest of the season to a wrist injury. The Jayhawks already have been playing without sophomore forward Silvio De Souza, whose name surfaced in an FBI probe into shady recruiting practices, and the loss of Azubuike could put a dent in their national title hopes.

Nevada passed every early season test it faced, entering last weekend as one of four undefeated teams left.

After the Wolf Pack lost 85-58 to New Mexico, the number of undefeated teams is down to three: Michigan, Virginia and No. 17 Houston.

"We just had a bad night all around," Nevada coach Eric Musselman said. "We had a bad night sharing the ball. We had a bad night defensively. Usually, they're zoned in on the scoring report, but we let guys who are shooters take open shots and we didn't play who we are. Just a terrible game for all of us."

Florida State entered ACC play on a roll, its only loss coming to defending national champion Villanova in late November. Then the Seminoles ran into Virginia's defensive buzz saw.

The Cavaliers lead the nation in defensive scoring and shut Florida State down, holding the Seminoles to 15 field goals and 52 points in a 13-point win.

COMPLETE AP TOP 25

1. Duke 12-1 (37 first-place votes, no change from last week)

2. Michigan 15-0 (9 first-place votes, no change from last week)

3. Tennessee 12-1 (13 first-place votes, no change from last week)

4. Virginia 13-0 (5 first-place votes, no change from last week)

5. Gonzaga 14-2 (No. 7 last week)

6. Michigan State 13-2 (No. 8 last week)

7. Kansas 12-2 (No. 5 last week)

8. Texas Tech 13-1 (No. 11 last week)

9. Virginia Tech 13-1 (No. 10 last week)

10. Nevada 14-1 (No. 6 last week)

11. Auburn 11-2 (No. 12 last week)

12. North Carolina 11-3 (No. 15 last week)

13. Florida State 12-2 (No. 9 last week)

14. Mississippi State 12-1 (No. 17 last week)

15. N.C. State 13-1 (No. 18 last week)

16. Ohio State 12-2 (No. 14 last week)

17. Houston 15-0 (No. 19 last week)

18. Kentucky 10-3 (No. 13 last week)

19. Buffalo 13-1 (No. 20 last week)

20. Iowa State 12-2 (Not ranked last week)

21. Marquette 12-3 (No. 16 last week)

22. Indiana 12-3 (No. 21 last week)

23. Oklahoma 12-2 (No change from last week)

24. St. John's 14-1 (Not ranked last week)

25. TCU 12-1 (Not ranked last week)

RISING CYCLONES

Iowa State coach Steve Prohm spent the early part of the season biding his team with several players out because of injuries. The Cyclones won two of three games at the Maui Invitational despite being down to eight scholarship players, and their only other loss came at Iowa in early December.

Finally healthy, Iowa State (12-2, 2-0 Big 12) picked up one of its biggest wins in four seasons under Prohm, blowing out Kansas 77-60 in Ames on Saturday.

"They're the standard in our league and the team we're all trying to catch," Prohm said. "It's a great win. I loved the way they competed."

Iowa State moved back into the AP Top 25 this week after reaching No. 18 earlier this season.

UNDEFEATED COUGARS

While Michigan and Virginia get plenty of attention for remaining undefeated while playing in major conferences, Houston continues to keep its record unblemished.

The Cougars had nonconference wins over Oregon, Oklahoma State and LSU, then opened the American Athletic Conference season with victories over Tulsa and Memphis last week. Houston faces Temple and Wichita State this week.

MOVING IN

St. John's (14-1, 2-1 Big East) moved into the AP Top 25 for the first time since hitting No. 15 in 2014-15 after knocking off No. 21 Marquette and beating Georgetown in overtime last week.

TCU, which was No. 20 in the preseason AP Top 25, returned to the poll at No. 25 this week following a home win over Baylor.

MOVING OUT

Wisconsin dropped out of the poll from No. 22 after losing to Minnesota and beating Penn State.

Iowa, No. 25 last week, is out after losing to Purdue and beating Nebraska, which dropped out from No. 24.

College Football Bowls 2018-19: Date, kickoff time and how to watch each bowl game

Happy college football bowl season! And while that means we are inching toward the dreaded offseason, there are several must-see bowl matchups with the potential to be so much fun. 

Sure, the four College Football Playoff teams -- Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Oklahoma --  will dominate the conversation during the next several weeks, and that's fine. But there are plenty of other teams which didn't make the playoff that are worth highlighting too. 

And whether it's a wild offensive matchup -- like Alabama and Oklahoma -- or one where fans are more interested in the location -- because who doesn't love the Bahamas Bowl? -- there's a good reason to watch a lot of these games, even if your team isn't playing in them. 

Starting with the Celebration Bowl on December 15 and running through the national championship game on January 7, here's a complete breakdown of every bowl game -- including kickoff time, what channel the games are on and where each one will be played.
