After losses to Tennessee and Texas A&M, Kentucky fell out of the AP Top 25 for the second time this season. Last week, the Cats hung tough at No. 24, but the first three-game losing streak of the John Calipari era was enough for AP voters to give them the boot. The Cats received only eight votes, which, honestly, seems pretty fair.

After another raucous week in college basketball, Virginia is the new No. 1 team in the country, followed by Michigan State and Villanova. Auburn fell to No. 10 and Tennessee to No. 18, while Texas A&M jumped back into the poll, coming in at No. 21.
