Kansas (3-0) and Georgetown (2-0) remained fourth and fifth, respectively.

Louisville (2-0) is sixth, followed by Tennessee (3-0), Indiana (2-0), Washington State (3-0) and Duke (2-0).

Oregon (4-0) and Michigan State (2-0) both are 11th. Marquette (2-0) is 13th, followed by Gonzaga (3-0) and Texas A&M (4-0).
