NCAA Basketball Rankings: Ohio State Retains Top Spot, Texas Ascends To No. 7

The latest version of the AP Top 25 Poll was released on Monday. While Ohio State retained its perch atop the rankings, there was a decent amount of movement in the other remaining 24 slots. Notable changes to the rankings include San Diego State moving into the top-5, Kansas falling out of the top 5 following their loss to Texas, and Texas A&M falling out of the top 10 to No. 13. With February just around the corner, you can expect the action to heat up across the country as teams vie for conference titles and their place in this year's March Madness.
