Villanova atop AP poll after tumultuous week

Villanova is the new No. 1 in the AP Top 25, hopping over Michigan State, while Arizona State made a big leap after a tumultuous week in which half of the top 10 lost.

Arizona State has been to three NCAA tournaments in the past 22 years. There will be no sweating a bid in 2018. Kansas, meanwhile, will fall off the top line for the first time in more than a year. Wichita State moves up.

We have a defensive slugfest in Stillwater, where No. 6 Wichita State leads Oklahoma State 26-23. The Shockers actually ended the half on a run after scoring just nine points in the first 15 minutes. WSU's trying to avenge the Cowboys' 93-76 win in Wichita last year, a result that likely contributed to the Shockers' low seed in the NCAA tournament.
