Top 25 College Basketball Rankings 2019: AP Poll For Week 9

The 2019-20 college basketball season is in full swing and its time for the latest AP Top 25 poll from the Associated Press. On Monday, December 30, the AP Top 25 poll for Week 9 was released with the Gonzaga Bulldogs holding on to the No. 1 spot.

There were some shake-ups at the top, however, after the Ohio State Buckeyes suffered an upset loss to West Virginia on Sunday, December 29, which dropped the Buckeyes from No. 2 to No. 5 in the latest rankings.

Rounding out the top five was the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils, No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks, and No. 4 Oregon Ducks.

This week, we will get some marquee matchups including Kansas vs. West Virginia, Louisville vs. Florida State, and Michigan vs. Michigan State as conference play kicks into full swing.

About the Associated Press Top 25 Poll

The Associated Press college basketball poll started on Jan. 20, 1949. The original poll had 20 teams, with Saint Louis the first school to hold the No. 1 ranking. From the 1961-62 season through 1967-68 only 10 teams were ranked. It expanded again to 20 teams from 1968-69 through 1988-89. The Top 25 began the next season, and it has stayed at that number ever since. The AP’s final poll is released after the field for the NCAA Tournament is selected.
