    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Kansas and Oklahoma, who played one of the season’s best games last week, remain 1-2 in the men’s Top 25 basketball poll by The Associated Press.

    The Jayhawks (14-1) beat the Sooners 109-106 in triple overtime. They received all but two first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. It is the second week at No. 1 for Kansas.

    Oklahoma (13-1) drew one No. 1 vote. It was followed by Maryland and Michigan State (16-1), which had the other first-place vote. North Carolina is fifth followed by Villanova, Xavier, Miami, Duke and SMU.

    SMU is in the top 10 for the first time since February 1985. The Mustangs (15-0) and No. 19 South Carolina (15-0) are the only unbeaten Division I teams. SMU is ineligible for the postseason because of NCAA rules violations.

    No. 21 Baylor and No. 25 Gonzaga are the week’s newcomers, replacing Connecticut and Dayton.
