Kansas is still No. 1 in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, but No. 2 Texas has closed the gap a bit.

The Jayhawks (10-0), who beat Michigan 75-64 in their only game last week, received 55 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel.

Texas (10-0), which beat No. 10 North Carolina 103-90 on Saturday, was No. 1 on seven ballots and picked up the six that Kansas lost.

Kentucky had one first-place vote and was third, followed by Purdue and Syracuse, which was No. 1 on two ballots.

Kansas State (10-1) moved up five places to 12th, its highest ranking since being ninth in the final poll of 1972-73. Temple (9-2) moved into the poll at 21st, its first appearance since November 2001.
