LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville held its spot at No. 3 in the latest Associated Press men's basketball poll after tumultuous week at the top.
Ohio State, which handed Kentucky its second straight loss in a trip to Las Vegas, jumped from No. 5 into the No. 2 spot.
Gonzaga ascended to the No. 1 spot to become the sixth different No. 1 team this season. The record for different No. 1 teams in a season is seven, but the Zags could be poised to stay a while, without another Top 25 team on their schedule.
Kentucky, on the heels of its back-to-back losses, fell to No. 19. It's the second double-digit drop in two seasons for UK, which fell 10 spots from No. 9 to No. 19 after losing to unranked Seton Hall last December. The Wildcats finished last season ranked No. 7.
The Wildcats will play host to Louisville in their annual rivalry matchup at Rupp Arena on Saturday at 3:45 p.m.
Louisville is followed by Duke and Kansas, rounding out the top five, and Oregon, Baylor, Auburn, Memphis and Villanova fill out the top 10.
