NCAA Basketball Rankings: Longhorns Receive Most First Place Votes, Still Third In AP Poll

The Texas Longhorns moved up a spot in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches college basketball poll, after Ohio State lost its first game of the season Saturday. They also received the most first place votes in the new AP poll, but that wasn't enough to move them past Kansas or Ohio State. Kansas tops both polls, leading the coaches poll by just seven total points. 

Texas has three losses this season, while Kansas and Ohio State both sit at just one. But the Longhorns beat Kansas by 11 in Lawrence on Jan. 22 and lost by one to UConn and two at Pittsburgh. They have won 10 straight since that loss to the Huskies.


Texas A&M ranks No. 17 in the coaches poll and No. 21 in the AP, while Missouri ranks No. 21 and No. 20. No other Big 12 school is ranked in either poll. Only Baylor received additional votes.
