Kansas Retakes No. 1 Spot In Both Top 25 Polls

Weeks 17 college basketball polls show Kansas on top.

While the rest of the college basketball world continues to beat itself up, the Kansas Jayhawks have been rolling. Bill Self's team is 9-0 since its January 26 loss to Iowa State, knocking off four ranked opponents along the way. With Villanova's loss at Xavier last week, KU is back atop the college basketball polls for the first time since January 11.

Michigan State, which appears to be regaining its early season form, is up to No. 2 in the AP poll and No. 3 in the Coaches' poll, while Villanova avoids a big fall, holding in at No. 3/2.
