South Carolina is No. 1 in the AP Poll for the 11th week in a row, receiving 28 of the 30 first-place votes from a national media panel. Louisville received the other two.
The top six teams remained the same, while the bottom half of the top 10 saw some shuffling. Iowa State is up to seventh from ninth last week, while Michigan is back in the top 10 at No. 8 after taking down Maryland. UConn jumped one spot to No. 9 while Arizona fell three spots to No. 10.
The Terrapins were the only team to fall out of the top 10 to No. 12.
Oklahoma was the week’s biggest riser, jumping nine spots to No. 14. The Sooners beat then-No. 14 Baylor earlier in the week and have now climbed to their best ranking since 2016.
Florida Gulf Coast and Iowa are back in the poll at Nos. 24 and 25, while Kansas State and South Florida dropped out.
