Complete NCAA Basketball Rankings: Kansas Is New No. 1; Missouri Falls

The Kansas Jayhawks are your new No. 1 team in the country ranking ahead of the Ohio State Buckeyes, Texas Longhorns, Pittsburgh Panthers and Duke Blue Devils. Kansas was ranked No. 2 last week but previous No. 1 Ohio State dropped a Saturday game to Wisconsin.

Missouri was ranked No. 19 last week in the AP poll and this week they drop one spot after dropping a game last week to Kansas. Mizzou is 19-6 on the season and they're ranked directly ahead of No. 21 Texas A&M, who is 19-5 on the season.

In all, there are four Big 12 teams ranked in the AP top 25. Kansas and Texas are No. 1 and No.3, while Missouri and Texas A&M are No. 20 and No. 21, respectively.

Big matchups this week include Monday's Kansas vs. Kansas State game. This will be KU's first game since becoming No. 1 in the country so they can probably expect a fired up Bramlage Coliseum. Missouri hosts Texas Tech on Tuesday night and heads to Iowa State to play the Cyclones on Saturday.
