The AP voters were impressed with Kentucky’s victory this past weekend over North Carolina.
In the latest edition of the AP Poll, the Wildcats moved up to No. 16 in the nation.
Following Kansas’ loss to Arizona State, the Jayhawks dropped to No. 5 while Duke reclaimed the No. 1 spot. Michigan (No. 2), Tennessee (No. 3), and Virginia (No. 4) rounded out the top five.
Within the conference, Tennessee holds the top spot while Auburn (No. 12), Kentucky (No. 16), and Mississippi State (No. 19) round out the SEC.
Interestingly enough, North Carolina (8-3) still sits ahead of the Wildcats at No. 14 overall.

It’ll be nice to take away those four votes next to Louisville’s name next week.
