The college basketball is in full swing and March is just around the corner. On Monday, the Associated Press announced its latest rankings of the 2021-22 season with the Week 17 AP Top 25 poll.

After a historic weekend that saw all of the top six teams losing and eight of the top nine suffering defeat, there was no telling what kind of shakeups we would see.

Luckily for Gonzaga and Arizona, they remained the top two teams in the country, while Baylor jumped to No. 3.

Duke and Auburn round out the top five, while a total of 21 teams changed spots.

About the Associated Press Top 25 Poll

The Associated Press college basketball poll started on Jan. 20, 1949. The original poll had 20 teams, with Saint Louis the first school to hold the No. 1 ranking. From the 1961-62 season through 1967-68 only 10 teams were ranked. It expanded again to 20 teams from 1968-69 through 1988-89. The Top 25 began the next season, and it has stayed at that number ever since. The AP’s final poll is released after the field for the NCAA Tournament is selected.
