LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Kentucky men's basketball team has climbed back up into the Associated Press Top 10 sitting at number 10. That's a two spot jump for the Wildcats from a week ago.

UK picked up wins last week over Vanderbilt on the road and Ole Miss at home to earn more points in the ballots from the voters. Baylor is still the number one team in the country with 48 of the 63 first place votes. They are followed up by Gonzaga, Kansas, San Diego St. and Dayton in the top five. After two losses last week, Louisville has fallen six spots to number 11.
