The Missouri Tigers and the Kansas Jayhawks are two of the top five teams in the country after big wins over the Baylor Bears last week.
With the win, Missouri is now the No. 3 team in the country, while Kansas isn't too far behind at No. 5. The top two teams, Kentucky and Syracuse, remain unchanged in the polls. The Wildcats are a unanimous No. 1 choice in this week's ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, receiving all 31 first-place votes in the poll released Monday afternoon.
Kentucky, Syracuse, Missouri, Duke and Kansas are followed by Ohio St., North Carolina, Michigan St. and Baylor round out the top ten.
Gonzaga (No. 24) and Notre Dame (25) both bumped into the rankings, with Creighton (previously No. 15) and Harvard 21) dropping out.
