Baylor Cracks Top 10 In AP Men’s Basketball Poll

(December 30, 2013) Arizona and Syracuse lead the same top five teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll for the fourth straight week, but Baylor moved up from No. 11 to No. 9 to crack the top 10.

The Lady Bears ranked No. 9 again this week in the AP women’s poll.

The 13-0 Wildcats’ lead in first-place votes changed for the first time Monday.

They received 60 No. 1 votes from the 65-member national media panel, three less than they got the last three weeks.

Syracuse (12-0), which beat previously unbeaten Villanova on Saturday, was No. 1 on the other five ballots.

The three Big Ten schools, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State, remained third through fifth.

Oklahoma State moved up one spot to sixth while Duke, Wichita State, Baylor and Oregon all jumped two places to round out the top 10.

Louisville, which lost at Kentucky on Saturday, dropped from sixth to No. 14 while Villanova fell three places to 11th with the loss at Syracuse.
