BOZICH | Kentucky no longer unanimous #1; Louisville sixth in AP poll

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A pair of overtime victories in Southeastern Conference play convinced two voters in the Associated Press Top 25 college basketball poll to switch their first-place votes from Kentucky to Virginia Monday.

The Wildcats remained atop the poll, but for the first time in six weeks, they were no longer the unanimous selection. Kentucky was named first on 63 of 65 ballots. UK needed one overtime to beat Ole Miss in Rupp Arena and then two OTs to win at Texas A&M Saturday.

Virginia jumped over Duke from third to second. The Blue Devils slid to fourth, behind UK, Virginia and Gonzaga.

Louisville, which hosts Virginia Tech Tuesday, dropped from fifth to sixth after its one-point loss at North Carolina. Indiana received 17 votes and finished 30th in the poll.
