NCAA Basketball Rankings: Syracuse Steady At No. 2

The Syracuse Orange keep winning, but they can't make any progress on the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats.

Syracuse remain No. 2 in the latest college basketball rankings behind only Kentucky. The Wildcats are a unanimous No. 1 choice in this week's ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, receiving all 31 first-place votes in the poll released Monday afternoon.

Kentucky and Syracuse are followed by Missouri, Duke and Kansas in the top five. Duke and Kansas both put together strong weeks, making big jumps after being ranked ninth and 10th last week, respectively. Ohio St., North Carolina, Michigan St. and Baylor round out the top ten.

Gonzaga (No. 24) and Notre Dame (25) both bumped into the rankings, with Creighton (previously No. 15) and Harvard 21) dropping out.
