After picking up victories over Baylor and Iowa State last week, the Kansas men's basketball team moved up one spot to No. 2 in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today coaches polls.

Kentucky, the lone remaining undefeated team, was the unanimous No. 1 in both rankings.

Following two losses last week, Texas fell from No. 1 to No. 6 in both polls. Kansas State, meanwhile, stayed in the top 15 (11th AP/13th coaches) in both rankings.

Baylor (24th AP) was the only other Big 12 team to earn a spot in the top 25.

The full rankings are below.
