      SU drops to #9 in AP poll, #10 in coaches poll

      Ohio State is again the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 men's college basketball poll, receiving all but two first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel.

      Pittsburgh jumps from fifth to second and Duke moves up one place to third. Both received one first-place vote Monday.

      San Diego State moves from sixth to fourth and Connecticut jumps three spots to fifth.

      Kansas, which lost for the first time on Saturday, fell from second to sixth followed by Texas, which beat the Jayhawks, Villanova, and BYU and Syracuse, which tied for ninth.

      The Big East, which matched its own record with nine ranked teams last week, is down to seven with West Virginia and Cincinnati falling out. Saint Mary's also dropped out.

      Vanderbilt, Florida State and Florida are the newcomers.

      The top 25 teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Jan. 23, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote and last week's ranking:
