The new AP college basketball poll is out, and Kentucky remains out of the Top 25. The Cats are second among teams “also receiving votes” behind New Mexico.
Louisville climbed a spot from No. 5 to No. 4, the ranking the Cardinals will have Saturday when Kentucky visits the KFC Yum Center.
Duke is still No. 1, followed by Michigan, Arizona, Louisville and Indiana. Missouri is ranked seventh after beating Illinois on Saturday. Florida dropped to 14th after losing to Kansas State in Kansas City. No other SEC teams are ranked.
The Cats are 23rd in the USA Today coaches’ poll.
