UNC Takes Over No. 1 Spot In Coaches Poll, Oklahoma Hangs On To Top Spot In AP

If you hit No. 1 in the college basketball polls, you better watch your back. For the fifth straight week, a new team sits at No. 1 in the Coaches' Poll. Oklahoma took over atop the polls last week, but after a loss to Iowa State last week, the Sooners have fallen to No. 2. North Carolina, which has not lost since December 12, has replaced them atop that poll. OU bounced back with a big win over Baylor, which was enough for the AP voters to keep the Sooners on top, however.
