The University of Nevada men’s basketball team is ranked sixth in the latest Associated Press College Basketball poll. 

Kansas, Duke, Tennessee, Michigan and Virginia round out the top five.

The Jayhawks earned 56 of 65 first-place votes to stay at No. 1, a perch they held in the preseason before being overtaken by Duke and later Gonzaga. Kansas returned to the top last week then beat reigning national champion Villanova.

Michigan and Virginia each climbed a spot into the top 5. Gonzaga slid four spots to eighth after losing at North Carolina, which jumped three spots to ninth.

No. 25 Nebraska was the only addition to this week's poll, though the Cornhuskers were ranked earlier this month. Villanova fell out for the second time this season after losing at Kansas and to Penn.

Nevada improved to 11-0 after defeating South Dakota State (9-4) 72-68 Sunday before 11,257 fans at Lawlor Events Center. The crowd is the 10th largest in school history. (See season stats below.)
