Kansas is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for a second straight week and for the fourth time this season.

The Jayhawks (27-4) are again a runaway choice, receiving 63 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel on Monday.

Michigan State (26-5), which got the other two first-place votes, remained second and was followed by Villanova, Virginia, Xavier, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Oregon, West Virginia and Indiana.

The same teams are in the Top 25 for a second straight week, the first time that has happened this season.

Next Monday's poll will be the last of the season.
