Kentucky remains No. 1 in latest AP basketball poll

Harvard is in The Associated Press' Top 25 for the first time.

The Crimson are off to an 8-0 start that includes a win over then-ranked Florida State. They are one of four teams to join the men's college basketball rankings, but Georgetown, Creighton and Illinois have all been regulars compared to No. 25 Harvard.

Kentucky (8-0) beat North Carolina on Saturday and holds the No. 1 spot for a second straight week. The Wildcats received 47 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel.

Ohio State (8-0) had the other 18 first-place votes to remain second. Syracuse, which beat Florida last week, moved up a spot to third. North Carolina, Louisville and Baylor are fourth through sixth, each advancing a place.
