Week 14 College Basketball Polls Feature New No. 1 After North Carolina, Oklahoma Lose

Week 14 college basketball polls from February 8.

Once again, it was not a great week to be college basketball's top school. Last week, two programs split that ranking in the APand CoachesPolls: North Carolina and Oklahoma. Like many 2015-16 teams before them, the Tar Heels and Sooners both suffered setbacks this week, leading to a big shakeup in the polls. UNC dropped both of its games, losing at Louisville Monday and Notre Dame on Saturday. Oklahoma could not pull out a win in the Octagon of Doom against Kansas State on Saturday as well. 

With OU and UNC slipping, Villanova is your new No. 1 in both polls.
