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 close out January.

On Monday, the Associated Press announced its latest rankings for the 2023-24 season with the Week 13 AP Top 25 poll.

This week, the UConn Huskies continue holding on to the No. 1 ranking, with 48 of a possible 62 first-place votes. Purdue, North Carolina, Houston, and Tennessee round out the top five for a second consecutive week.

Elsewhere, there was chaos.

Wisconsin, Duke, and Marquette jumped into the top 10, while Iowa State made a massive 11-spot leap into the top 15. Going the wrong direction is Kentucky, which fell four spots to No. 10, Auburn, and Oklahoma. The Sooners crashed 12 spots to No. 23 after consecutive losses to unranked Texas and No. 20 Texas Tech.

Where does your favorite team stand as we continue another season?

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.
