Upsets shook up the top five in the AP Poll, and George Washington gains one place to No. 20.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan State managed to hold serve this week and remain as the No. 1 team in the latest AP Poll. The Spartans once again earned 64 of the 65 first place votes available.

Kansas picked up the other first place vote, and stayed at No. 2, while Oklahoma held its place at No. 3.

Losses by Kentucky and Iowa State opened the door for Maryland and Virginia to enter the top five.

The George Washington Colonials moved up one spot this week after defeating St. Peter's on Saturday. They face DePaul on Tuesday in their only action this upcoming week.

Other schools in our coverage receiving votes this week were Gonzaga (33), Dayton (17), Northern Iowa (15), Arkansas-Little Rock (14) and Monmouth (6).
