The Kansas Jayhawks are up three spots to No. 6 in this week's Sports Illustrated College Basketball Power Rankings as compiled by Luke Winn.

The Jayhawks (11-1) are riding a 10-game winning streak that saw them dispatch the No. 7 Ohio State Buckeyes, 74-66, on Dec. 22, and will try to keep the streaking rolling when they play host to the Temple Owls on Monday, Jan. 6.

The top three spots in the power rankings are unchanged from last week's poll, with the Duke Blue Devils claiming the top spot, the Louisville Cardinals at No. 2 and Michigan Wolverines at No. 3. No. 4 Arizona and No. 5 Indiana swapped spots from last week's rankings, and the No. 7 Minnesota Golden Gophers made a huge six-spot jump to No. 7 to join the Top 10.

Tipoff for the Jayhawks clash with the Owls (10-2) is slated for 3:30 p.m. CT at Allen Fieldhouse, and the game will be televised on CBS.
