After jumping six spots in the AP Poll to No. 12, Kentucky made a similar rise in the Coaches Poll. The Cats are up four spots to No. 14 this week, just ahead of North Carolina.

How the Tar Heels only fell three spots after being clobbered by Louisville at home is beyond me. Regardless, here’s the poll in full:
