The University of Kansas has moved up to No. 3 in the Associated Press college basketball poll.

Michigan, which jumped from fifth to second, had 11 No. 1 votes. Kansas, which had seven first-place votes, and Syracuse, which knocked Louisville out of No. 1, tied for third. Syracuse received eight No. 1 votes.

Louisville dropped to fifth and was followed by Arizona, Indiana, Florida, Butler and Gonzaga.
