Kansas and Oklahoma moved to the top two spots in The Associated Press' college basketball poll and the Big 12 schools will meet Monday night.

Kansas (12-1) received 44 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel on Monday while Oklahoma (12-0) got the other 21.

It will be the 40th time the top two teams in the poll have faced each other.

Maryland and Virginia both moved up one spot to third and fourth while Michigan State, which was No. 1 for the last four weeks, fell to fifth. North Carolina, Arizona, Providence, Kentucky and Xavier completed the Top Ten.

Kansas is the fourth school to be ranked No. 1 this season, joining North Carolina, Kentucky and Michigan State.

Iowa, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and Dayton are the four newcomers this week, replacing Utah, Cincinnati, Baylor and UCLA.
