The college basketball season is in full swing, and we have an official look at how programs across the country stack up against each other as we push toward the end of January.

On Monday, the Associated Press announced its latest rankings for the 2023-24 season with the Week 12 AP Top 25 poll.

This week, the UConn Huskies continue holding on to the No. 1 ranking, with 44 possible 17 first-place votes.

UConn is followed by Purdue, which holds 17 first-place votes of its own, while the North Carolina Tar Heels, Houston Cougars, and Tennessee Vols round out the top five.

Going in the opposite direction are the Kansas Jayhawks, who fell out of the top five, and the Duke Blue Devils and Baylor Bears, who dropped from the top 10 after suffering upset losses in Week 11.

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.
