Kansas strengthens grip on No. 1; Miami jumps to No. 10

Kansas‘ comeback win in a marquee matchup kept the Jayhawks firmly entrenched atop The Associated Press Top 25 men’s college basketball poll on Monday, while Miami climbed to its highest ranking in nearly five years.

The Jayhawks stayed at No. 1 and Miami climbed to No. 10 to replace a tumbling Florida Atlantic in the only major change at the top of the rankings.

Kansas (3-0) rallied from 14 down to beat Kentucky in last week’s Champions Classic, led by a huge game from transfer big man Hunter Dickinson in its lone game of the week. That helped the Jayhawks pick up an additional first-place vote from last week, topping 52 of 61 ballots.

The Hurricanes (5-0) offered the only change to the top tier of the poll after beating Kansas State to win the Baha Mar Hoops Bahamas Championship. They climbed two spots to crack the top 10 for the first time since spending four weeks there early in the 2017-18 season.

Miami replaced Florida Atlantic, which opened the year at No. 10 after last year’s Final Four run, but fell nine spots to No. 19 in the week’s biggest fall after a home loss to Bryant.

There’s the potential for much more change next week with Thanksgiving holiday tournaments. The loaded Maui Invitational field includes five of the top-11 teams in Kansas, No. 2 Purdue, No. 4 Marquette , No. 7 Tennessee  and No. 11 Gonzaga.

Here’s the full top 25:

1. Kansas (3-0)
2. Purdue (3-0)
3. Arizona (5-0)
4. Marquette (3-0)
5. UConn (4-0)    
6. Houston (6-0)
7. Tennessee (3-0)
8. Creighton (4-0)
9. Duke (3-1)
10. Miami (5-0)
11. Gonzaga (2-0)
12. Texas A&M (4-0)
13. Baylor (4-0)
14. North Carolina (3-0)
15. Texas (4-0)
16. Kentucky (3-1)
17. Alabama (4-0)
18. Colorado (3-0)
19. Florida Atlantic (2-1)
20. Arkansas (3-1) 
21. Michigan State (3-2)
22. James Madison (4-0)
23. USC (3-1)
24. Virginia (4-0)
25. Mississippi State (5-0)
